I am so tired of washing sheets! My kid is 10 and he pees in his bed every single nite. I am considering buying diapers again

They are on average less than a dollar apiece- much cheaper than a load of laundry...

So expensive to buy those but I may have to. He peed two beds last night, his first and then mine. I didn't even know he had got in with me.

Wait...I missed this earlier...If he peed in two beds then obviously that means he peed twice during the night (at least) which probably means the mats won't do much good. If he wakes up wet in his bed he'll just get into yours again, and you won't have the mat.  I was a late bedwetter and I had a canvas-like mat I slept on to protect the bed, but obviously my underwear and pajamas were wet, at least with a Nighttime that won't happen.

My nephew was 12 before he quit peeing in the bed. He out grew it, and did not need medication. SOme boys just can't hold it. Doesn't mean something is wrong with them.

Quoting Proud-mama-05:

Get a 2nd opinion? 10 seems kinda old to be doing this without there being an underlying cause.

And doc says the same thing over and over. Deep sleeper, immature bladder

Diapers and another trip to the doctor.

My son used to wet his bed all the time, and I didn't want to go back to using pull-ups.  I started cutting off my son's liquids an hour before bed, and made a rule that he has to use the toilet before he goes to bed at night.  I also started making him help me wash his soild bedding. He didn't like that one bit, and now he will get up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night.  Good luck.

He wets more than once pretty often. Even when I change his clothes and bedding in the middle of the night he will be wet again by morning. Also a pull-up usually will not hold all the way thru the nite

Hi!

First get a pediatric checkup, for infection or urinary tract problems. Then, double sheet his bed, put a large sheet of plastic, you can get it by the yard at Joanne's, or use a large trash bag, on his bed where his hips lie. Cut or fold a twin sheet in half lengthwise. Put that on his bed over the rubber/plastic sheet and tuck it in the way nurses put a draw sheet or incontinent pad on a hospital bed. Or, You can buy the incontinent pads at most drugstores. Then, after an accident, you just have to wash the draw sheet and wipe off the barrier pad. Good luck, he won't go to college in diapers. Hugs

Has this been going on all along, or is it a new development?  If it is new, see the doctor.  If it is the way he has always been, get night pants...

get the kids goodnights.  Have you talked to his ped? Its no longer considered "normal" after about age 7, and every night seems a bit excessive... is he a hard sleeper?

First get a plastic liner for the mattress. Then require him to clean the plastic and wash the sheets. At 10 he is plenty old enough to use the washer. That way he is taking responsibility for the situation. You can try goodnites, those disposible pads that go over the sheets too.
