    My son is 11 years old and still wets the bed. He probably only ever had a handful of dry nights. We have tried everything, (doctors, drugs, alarms…). Every night he puts on a goodnite pullup before bed and every morning he has a soaked pullup. Its very understandable as his doctor says it’s genetic and both my wife and I wet the bed as kids. He is slightly embarrased. I asked him if he would prefer to skip the pullups and just wear his regular underwear, but after a few nights he hated that feeling and begged to wear pullups (to each his own).He does have friends that he has told, and has had sleepovers.
    But his/our question is did any of your children have this issue? How did you combat it? How did you overcome it? And how old did it last?


    I used a Chiropractor for one of my children when all else failed, and although he/she got better after many visits, it may just as well have been that the child naturally outgrew it. It was quite a while back so I don’t remember all the specifics, but the child was probably about 10 when it resolved.

    The chiropractor had some explanation with a scan showing inflammation, so if you’re desperate do some more research and decide if you want to try it.

    Insurance didn’t cover it for us at that time.

    As a separate tip did you try to double up by having him wear 2 pullups at a time to make it thicker and see if that at least prevents it from bed wetting and just damaging the pullups?


    google it and use the recommendations of a reputable source.
    Here is my experience.
    Train with wet alarm. Have some natural consequences. Child does own laundry etc. Psych the child that he can do it. Set alarm clock for half hour before his usual time of bed wetting. Have child do things that are hard for him and tell him he can do anything that he sets his mind to. (Researchers included jogging in place until too tired and then adding one more minute.)


    Ask your doctor about desmopressin. It’s taken about an hour before bed with no drinking allowed until morning. It slows urine production and helps eliminate bedwetting.


    We used Imapramine.


    I started taking him to mikva Fridays and it stopped
