Yea, I have not had to deal with wet bedding this week as Alex wore a Pampers each night. After he woke up wet on May 1st he had several dry nights and tried convincing me he is NOT a bedwetter. Then he had a wet diaper on the morning of May 5th and 6th. I started marking a "w" on the kitchen calendar on the mornings he is wet. He can now see that he was wet on 50% of the May days and so he may start to accept that he is a bedwetter. We do have an appointment with the doctor. Alex is demanding he get the medicine that stops bedwetting. What are others thoughts on this?

Sounds like the boy was in denial for a bit of time. I don't blame him for wanting that medicine that stops bed wetting and that. Yes the calender is working out for him but please don't have it on your kitchen calender. Perhaps a different calender that only you and he knows where it is. His friends just might see it and to escape Alex just might throw his younger brother under the bus and pin it on him and his younger brother just might throw Alex under the bus and pin the same thing on Alex. So the calender thing as much as it is working to show Alex how much he really is wetting the bed should be placed in a more private spot in the house. Other than that I think he should keep wearing diapers to bed for containment and when the doctor is adjusting his medicine and such, Alex should still be wearing diapers. I know it is embarrassing but it is keeping the urine all in one easy to manage place which all he needs to do is to take off the diaper, throw it away, clean him self up with wipes and put on regular underwear to start his day unless he is a day wetter then he should be wearing 24/4 which that will definitely bite for him. And lastly. I agree with commander and soldier when they say. Do not listen to Justin. He is a pedophile freak who is obsessed with little boys in diapers. He has some very sick and twisted fantasies of having kids in diapers for his own sexual pleasure.

So aside from that to sum things up.
1. Keep using the diapers at night.
2. Move the calender somewhere private
3. Even when the doctor has him using the medication, keep Alex in diapers at night.
4. It will fit him better if you did use those pull ups which I strongly suggest Underjams.
5. When buying them Go online. Don't buy them with him in the store because chances are his friends might be there.
6. Don't listen to Justin and ignore him.

And The e the e the e that's all folks!

Hi, I'm Dean a 20 yo bed wetter and more.
I hear you can get a spray that will dry you up but it is only reconmended that you use it fo a week as if used long term it can damage you kidny's,
A friend had it far his holiday at camp so no one would know he still wet the bed and it works, he forgot one night and he wet but got away with it.
I hope he willl accept that there are a lot of us that have problems like this and may be he might concider comeing on here himsel for help and advice and just a symperthictic ear, let him talk anomously to us if he wants, it might help.
Bye, Dean.

I am a father to 5 and I feel that you should give him 2 options one put a plastic sheet on the bed or two put pull ups or bedwetter pants on him my stepson occasionally wets he is 15 and he doesnot even realise he has a protective sheet on his bed as it has a fleece top on and plastic underside. I would never ever force diapers on a child .

Forcing nappies on a child could cause dependancy on then and they will never be dry at night.

Alex is now wetting the bed every night. I no longer have to mark a calendar to get him to admit he is now bedwetter. I got the Goodnites for him so he can just put them on himself. He now sleeps through the entire night without getting up and sometimes the Goodnite has leaked. This means I have wet sheets again, which is what I was trying to avoid in the first place - I just don't want to have to deal with any wet sheets. Any suggestions?

Put some padding on the bed to prevent wet sheets does he like wearing the goodnites? Does he wear anything over them? What he thinks of the patterns?

Justin: No, he doesn't really like wearing the goodnites, but he likes them better than the Pampers. He has never worn diapers until recently, so all this is new and embarrasing to him. Also, he does not like the patterns on the goodnites since they are childish, but at least they are not babyish like the pampers. He's not wearing anything over them, so I guess I could have hime wear some plastic pants over them so they don't leak.

Do u ask him to put his own drynites on? How does he feel when he's wet does he tell u? Does he still act like a little child? Does he resist u putting the drynites on him?

As a lifelong bedwetter I have tried all kinds of disposable nappies and have to say most if not will leak at some point. I sleep very deeply and wet several times during the night and being wet never wakes me so I have gone back to wearing terry nappies and plastic pants to save on wet sheets every morning. It sounds as though your son is like I was at that age, totally indifferent to my bedwetting. I just couldn't see what all the fus was about. The only trouble is this can easily turn in to a fetish during puberty as it did with me. I continued wetting all through my teens often on purpose. Although this doesn't do any harm it isn't socially accepted and shouldn't be encouraged.

Alex, my 13 yr old son has wet the bed about 10 times over the past couple months. He was potty trained by age 2 and has only worn boxers since then. My husband was a bedwetter until age 19, so the Dr. said we could easily have this problem for few years. Alex refuses to let me put a plastic sheet on his bed since his friends are often in his room. He refuses to change his wet sheets. When I mention wearing some kind of protection he will not even discuss it. Honestly, he is a little bit of a brat and I know he was one that picked on another scout last summer at scout camp about bedwetting, so I know he doesn't want any part of it. He is a very outgoing, popular, athletic, and opinionated kid. Should I force him in diapers at his point? Any suggestions on how to do this?
PUT HIM BACK IN DIAPERS OR WASH THE BED ALOT
TELL IT IS OK BUT YOU NEED TO GO BACK IN DIAPERS TELL YOU STOP WETTING THE BED. THERE IS A PAD YOU CAN PUT UNDER HIM FOR THE BED WETTING , I GOT ONE ON MY BED TOO

Josh - in answer to your questions. Yes - I still often have to ask him to put his goodnite or Pampers on. He does not tell me when he is wet as he is too embarrassed about the whole thing. I let him put his own diaper on, so he does not really resist.

I have him back in pampers since the Goodnites leaked. He does not like them since they are so babyish and the tapes are hard for him to get on by himself. I had to help him the other night with the tapes and I noticed he has some diaper rash.

If your son is not keeping his nappy on in bed, then you will have eather tie him to it or tie big mittens on/to his hands so he cant use his fingers.

No, we don't live in London, we're in the U.S. I don't think Alex takes his nappie off at night. He now just wakes up wet every morning.

Katherine - what's with the mittens? Don't you want a kid to be able to wake up use the toilet instead of his diaper?
