My daughter who is fixin to turn 9 years old i am having trouble potty training her at night.  she doesn't get anything to drink after dinner she is made to go to the bathroom about every 30 minutes until bed time and she is made to go to the bathroom before she is to go to bed.  yet she soaks through a pullup every single night to the point i am washing sheets almost evey day.  I consult her pediatrian and she says it is normal.  I can understand an every once in a while bedwetting but not every nigh.  this is gettting old.  can anyone help me

I had that problem growing up. I had to take medicine at night for it and it helped me. Idk exactly what I all had to go thru but I know they used a catheter with a camera on it and looked at my bladder. Maybe she should be referred to a specialist. It might be a good thing.

I had issues too until I was 6 or 7? But not every night. Some people have mentioned waking their children during the night to use the bathroom. I think consulting a specialist would be a good idea too if it is an option.

 Have you tried a bed sensor?

 Oh, and look into testing her hormones, this can sometimes be an issue as well.

Do they still make bed sensors? I really hope not. My husband had bed wetting issues as a child and his parents did that to him. It was awful. He still has issues today because of it. I wouldn't do it. It's just plain mean!

I agree, I would ask for another opinion.

I would go seek help from another doctor. But did you try not using pull ups at all? My husband's grandma said one of her sons was potty trained during the day but would go every time he had the pull ups on. Once she stopped putting them on him he stopped wetting at night. But otherwise I am at a loss. Sorry

 Yes, they do still make them. I have actually known many people who have used them successfully. They are a line of treatment along with behavior modification that can work very well, especially for children who are deep sleepers. Why do you think it's mean?

 Have you tried setting an alarm clock(maybe get her a kids oriented one) next to her bed that rings and reminds her to go at night? Worked for my son but he is three.. good luck :)
