  • We got a bed wetting alarm that went off every time he wet the bed took about 3 weeks. He was 6.

  • Less water before bed?

  • I would suggest taking him to the Dr and finding out if there are any underlying problems.

  • I hope he grows out of it soon, that is all you can do if there is nothing medically wrong

  • How is he going now?

  • Some children just take a little longer than others

  • how is he going now?

  • It does seem that the boys take longer and from other questions about this it seems that until they are seven it isn’t considered a problem (by the doctors).

  • Hope you have had some success with the bed wetting.

  • How is he going now?

  • You could also talk to your GP about it.

  • Don’t forget you can also get Dry nites pants for this age.

  • Ask the chemist and they may have something you can use

  • Some children are just such solid sleepers that they can’t wake themselves up at night if they need to go to the toilet, they will grow out of it, my daughter did.

  • I hope that you worked something out
