Please reassure yourself and your daughter that this is actually pretty common and will go away over time. My daughter had to wear nighttime "pullups" until she was 8, and my son until he was 7. And contrast that with my youngest, who is 4 and stays dry all night.

I'm not sure of the reasoning why some children can't stay dry all night, whether they just sleep too soundly, or their bladder is small, or whatever.

But my daughter and son both outgrew it in their own time. It just takes patience (and if they started wetting through the pullups, I would go up a size, even if they weren't technically the right weight yet).

There is a medication that can help, but essentially all it does is dehydrate the body so you don't need to go, and if you go off it, if your body isn't ready for staying dry all night then you'll go back to wetting the bed. But if she's particularly embarrassed about it, maybe you could ask the doctor about it.

Other than that, just try not to worry about it. It'll happen when her body is ready. I didn't bother keeping my kids out of the pullups until they were waking up dry all the time.

Best of luck!
