Bedwetting????
 
I have a five year old son who wets to bed. I recently took him to the doctor and he put him on some medicine. The first night it worked after that its not working. The problem is i cant get him to care about not wetting to bed. I tried giving him stickers to reward him and he was excited at first but now he dont care. I put him in pullups so he doesnt get the sheets all wet and i thought about taking them off but i cant, most of the time in the middle of the night he get in bed with me and i dont know that he does because i take something to help me sleep so if i didnt put a pullup on him he'd wet in my bed too. I dont know what too do, is there anyone out there that might have a suggestion of something i could do to help him care about not wanting to wet to bed. I would appreciate it! Tee:confused:

Teresa, my daughter wet the bed until she was 6. For her, her bladder just needed to grow (plus she was a deep sleeper). When she was younger she couldn't hold urine very long at all. If she told me that she had to use the bathroom while we were out I had minutes to find a bathroom. When she would urinate it would come out with all this force (you know what it sounds like when your bladder is full) but she wouldn't have that much urine. Eventually, her bladder grew. She can now hold urine much easier (she's 8) and there isn't this forceful sound anymore and she pees more at one time. Rewarding your son isn't going to help because he can't help it. Keep him in the pull up until he wakes up dry.

Sannah,
My son does the same thing, he has to pee all the time and when hes got to go he got to go. I never thought about he bladder not being the right size yet. I guess ill just be patience and see what happen. Thanks for the info it really helped. Tee
