My son is 3, and is fully potty-trained, during the day.....he wets his bed about twice a week. We always make him go before putting him to bed, but here he has done it again at 2 in the morning, he had already wet the sheets the night before that, so he has taken my spot in our bed and I'm on the couch for lack of sheets to put back on his bed. I am about ready to stock up on sheets, but we have a baby due in April, and I would like to stop this as much as I can before I am pulling night-feeding duty with the baby and bedwetting duty with our son.
We were limiting his intake of fluids for a bit, but I felt so bad for him when he was thirsty and telling him he couldn't drink much more than a sip. I just wish some alarm bells would go off in his head when he felt the sensation. Tonight, I think he felt the need to go, but he was only half awake and didn't think to get up! He does get very upset when he wakes up in a wet bed, so at least he cares I guess
I know we are very lucky to only be dealing with this at night, and only on some nights. But I really am worried about what this is going to be like with a new baby in the house that will already need me up several times a night. Thanks for any advice you can give!
Thank you for my beautiful siggy, AlexAiden Mommy!
I have started limiting Sharlotte's fluid intake at night and making her pee before going to bed. I want to get her into the habit of doing that. I don't have much advice I just wanted to say I sympathize.
My son I have found the longest he can go at night right now is about 8 hours. I have him go rigt before he goes down for the night, then a few hours later (when I go to bed) I take him to the bathroom and he goes then too. He doesn't fully wake up and goes right back to sleep when I put him back in his bed. If I wake up and have to go during the night I will sometimes take him then too. He does wake up if he really has to go, and I have a really hard time going back down after which is part of why I take him sleeping before he wakes up himself. I have hopes he will start holding it longer at night over time and also start to learn to go on his own as he gets older. Since your son is older maybe you can gently wake him up before he would typically wet the bed and make a trip and maybe his body will eventually learn to wake up and go on it's own.
