My son is seven and needs to be taken downstairs when my husband and I go to sleep so he can go to the bathroom. He had bowel issues for years when he was younger and it took its toll on his bladder. We hope to someday work it out. But for now, we never quite know if he will make it through the night so it's better safe than sorry

I have decided to put a call into our physician.  I have cut back on the drinks and sweets etc... She wants to go for sleepovers, but I can't let her go until this issue is resolved. I am pretty sure wearing a kid pull-up would be devastating in front of other girls her age.

I think nowadays you would be surprised at how many kids ar wearing pull-ups.  she could always change in the bathroom by herself.  I am not saying use them all the time, but maybe just at sleepovers.  Target sells Underjams, by Pampers I believe.  I had a hard time as a kid myself.  I was a deep sleeper and had a had time waking up.

My dd she is going to be 8 in march. She wets her bed and wets, sometimes poops in her pants. She has a lot of emotional problems though.

Wondering f this is just something that started recently? Was she potty trained before and is suddenly starting to wet the bed? If so, definitely go see a doc. Does the urine have a strong odor?

If it's something that isn't new, I wouldn't worry so much. I would just teach her how to clean herself up. You could try a bed wetting alarm. When they start to go, it sets off an alarm to wake them up and teaches them to listen to their body even when asleep.

 It is just hard to handle. I know she is a deep sleeper and I do believe that is part of the problem.  That's a great idea about changing in the bathroom. I just know that sometimes kids are cruel (unintenionally) and I hate for her to be picked on.  I will look for the Underjams. Thank you Cherish77.

 Its seems to be worse lately.  Our lives have not changed much and I am pretty involved in school activities so I don't belive its anything emotional.  It does have a strong odor though another reason I made an appointment. She was potty trained well before both of my boys.  My two year old gets up and goes to the bathroom already and my oldest was the same.  So, we are just concerned. Thank you Saharra.
