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

Neither. But i did use a liner for the mattress, he didn't want 'diapers', he wanted to wear underwear.


Quoting heathermom77:

Thank you so much. Sounds very familiar. Logan usually wets more than once a night too. Did you use sleep pants or pullups at all?




Quoting ksueditz:

My son was a heavy sleeper also. He would wet and sleep right through it. I would find him dry, but smelling of urine or soaking wet b/c he had peed more than once. So I started getting him up about 12 and would set him on the potty. But he didn't wake up. The alarm helped b/c it woke him up enough to fully void his bladder. Hope you get this figured out for the little guy.






Quoting heathermom77:

Haven't tried an alarm but he is a very heavy sleeper. Lately I have been changing his pants around 11 pm and he doesn't wake up when he wets or when I change him. Thanks for the advice :) I'll keep trying and look into the alarms!!












Quoting ksueditz:

Have you tried setting an alarm? My son had problems with wetting the bed until he was 8. I set an alarm for midnight and woke him up, made him see, then put him back to bed. After a few months he was able to get himself up. It's important you wake them fully so they are trained to get up themselves.














Quoting heathermom77:

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
















Quoting steelcrazy:

Diapers and another trip to the doctor.

my 10 yr old brother will pee the bed, but if he sleeps on the floor he will actually get up at night and go. i think my parents get him the pull up things for his age.

He was almost 4. Yeah, lol, I did do a lot of laundry. He wanted'big boy's underwear, so i let him, b/c I thought it might help. Good luck to you both, I hope you find what works.

I'm sure you are doing the obvious. I had problems for a very long time. Even as an adult I had issues. I had to cut back liquid consumption before bed. Don't let him drink anything after six or seven. I have it under control now but my issue was mostly I would dream that I was on the toilet and then peed the bed. It sucked but I'm glad it's over. That was the biggest thing for me though, not drinking before bed.

Logan was almost 5 and he even now he still has accidents. It's frustrating. Thanks so much for sharing with me, it helps!
