How my 8-year-old learned to stop bedwetting
I believe use of an alarm once a child begins to feel embarrassed and frustrated with bedwetting is a families best choice. I used the book, 7 Steps to Nightime Dryness to educate myself. Also get the children’s book, Prince Bravery and Grace - Attack of the Wet Knights for your child. http://www.braveryandgrace.com This book really helps a child want to try an alarm.
Then research alarms, we used malem. I suggest narrowing the choice to 2 alarms and letting your child make the final choice. Explain to your child that once you invest in an alarm, he/she must agree to use it each night. I even suggest writing a little contract which you both sign. Remember YOU must wake your child when the alarm goes off for at least a week or two - until your child’s brain is conditioned to wake up to the body’s signal. It takes patience but it is definitely worth the time and effort. My child went from wet every night for 8 years to completely dry every night within two months of consistently using an alarm. Get the books first -they are the key to easiest success. http://www.braveryandgrace.com Then get an alarm and be calm and consistent.

I have long since accepted my bedwetting as part of being me. I no longer worry about it. Being wet never keeps me awake so it just isn't a big deal.

Ah well when I tried disposables that used to happen but since changing to terries I hardly ever wake and if U do I just turn over and drop back to sleep in no time. I never change during the night. Once on my nappy stays on until morning.

Mine are large terry towelling squares that I fold an pin on and keep in place with snug fitting plastic pants. If my pants are too loose I find the urine pools on them and finds it's way out eventually.

I didn't know that depression can cause bedwetting in adults. I hope you can get through it.
