I’m hoping for some advice about bed wetting. My 7 year old son is wet every night. We’ve never worried about it before as it’s only really in the last year he’s stopped having accidents during the day. He doesn’t seem to get much notice still! However, night is our next challenge. He is such a deep sleeper. He is wet every night and leaks through a pull-up several times a week.
We’re trying to encourage drinking large amounts in the morning so his bladder gets used to holding large amounts of liquid. I’m also trying to restrict drinks after 5:30pm, but I can’t not let him have a drink when he comes in thirsty after Football/swimming/beavers.
I’m looking at getting an alarm, but I have no idea which one to buy - there’s such a large range! I am worried that an alarm may not wake him as we can pick him up, change him, put his lights on and he won’t wake up. So does anyone know of a loud alarm that may wake him?
I will go to the doctor about this, but want to try other options first, however, he’s already saying he doesn’t want to go on the school residential as he doesn’t want his friends to know.
Does anybody have any advice/experience they can share with me?
