I have a almost 5 year old who is a wonderfully awesome kid.....I actually gloat (LOL) when I see other parents because my boy is just a great child. But (there is always a but), he has a huge bedwetting issue. I know its normal, especially for boys, but this is getting out of hand. Without intervention, he will wet the bed 1-5 times per night.
I have tried all the usual ways of dealing with bedwetting but I think that its just because his is HARD sleeper.....really hard...no kidding. What I mean is that I almost cannot wake him up to go pee which is the only way he can wake up dry in the morning. He goes to bed at 8, peetime at 8:45, 10:00, 12:00, and 6:00 am.
To wake him: (I have tried everything else....everything!) All lights on, pick up up, carry him to potty, pajamas down, YELL at him LOUD (positively...kind words etc), shake him, etc. If I am lucky, he will pee some and barely open his eyes, but rarely actually "wakes up." He sleepwalks on occasion....if you catch him sleepwalking and tell him to use the potty...guess what....he pees through his pajamas right where he is standing.
Anyone else have kid who can sleep through a trainwreck of heavy metal music? Advice?
Thanks in advance
