Re: 7 year old Bedwetting issues

Why dont you have him wear "Pampers Pull-Ups" or an adult type diaper to bed to avoid cleanup? If you are kind and honest, and up frount with him, he wont feel bad about it. He knows hes going to pee again! And who cares! In the grand scheme of things, it is ok, he will probably grow out of it. I actually wet the bed for a long time. And thanks to my mother for not quickly jumping on the advice of conventional medicine, we found out that it had a lot to do with my SLEEP cycle. You see, I was such a sound sleeper, my brain would simply not "trigger" me to wake up in time, or at all if I had the urge to urinate when asleep. Which makes sence that as I got older with the situation...I would often dream that I was waking, going into the bathroom and relieving myself, often waking up right after I had just "let it go". My parents made me not feel ashamed my explaining it to me rationally, not emotionally. I dont know why they did not let me wear a diaper type product!!! The nature of my sleep and "triggers" developed naturally for the good and I quit peeing the bed on my own time (around age 8 with a few far betweens for another 1 1/2 years) That is pretty long! Oh well.
