I haven't had bedwetters but what I WOULD do is put a shower curtain under the sheet to help protect the mattress. Gl mama, frustrating.   :(

He may just not be ready to be dry at night. Some children take longer than others. You can get disposable bed pads that go under the lower part of the body between the sheet and the person that might help with the sheet cleaning up. You can ask his doctor, and also ask a pediatric specialist, but it may just be that he isn't ready yet.

Bed wetting is from a immature bladder. Just have to let it mature. Put a mattress protected on to protect the mattress.

 sometimes it just takes some kids longer...i had a bedwetter too, so i get it! it is soooo frustrating! my daughter JUST stopped wetting the bed this past november (she will be 9 next week).  she used to not get drinks after 530. she would pee before bed (745ish) and then if i didnt get her up by 11-1130ish, she would be soaking wet...

when she was 6, i put her back in pullups, because i got so sick of washing sheets every.single.day!  she hated them..but..she didnt have a choice..then in september, i took her to the dr, and got some pills for her...she took the pills, and she stopped peeing her bed...however, the pills were not a cure..the dr said that if she didnt take a pill at night, she would just go right back to wetting the bed again...so i kept her on the pills for a few months, and told her how good she was doing, and how proud of her i was etc...pretty much i gave her self-esteem a boost of confidence...then i told her that because she was doing so good, she didnt need the pills anymore..so we stopped..and she hasnt peed the bed since!

 has he been to the dr to get checked out to see if he has a bladder infection, or uti?

yes, i've taken him and asked his pedi about it but he said that it was really normal for most children his age and sometimes they even do it till they are 7 but i can tell he is getting to where it is makeing him embarrassed because he will wake up and when he realizes that he has done it he will cry and say "oh no not again!" it just makes me feel bad thinking i might not be doing everything i can to help him stay dry at night :/

I might try the disopable pads because he really hates wearing the pull ups and they just seem to make the bed wetting worse because he would always wake up wet when i put them on him at night
