My son is 11 and he wets the bed... he has been since he was around 6 so this is nothing new for me. By morning his goodnite is usually saturated. Latley though or i would say for the past week to week and a half he has been dry all night. However he will wake up in the moring usually around 730 8 ish so he can get ready for camp. When he wakes up he has to pee so bad that by the time he finally gets to the bathroom he has already soaked the goodnite. I dont think he is being lazy or that he has out grown bed wetting. I asked why this keeps happeing and when he replies he tells me he wakes up and he has to go so bad that he just cannot hold it anymore as he is going to run to the bathroom. What could this be? Last night he actually wet the goodnite while sleeping so i am trying to figure out what exactally is going on. Hs younger brother wets the bed and his older brother 14 stopped when he turned 13. Any advice???

I agree that your son hasn’t outgrown bedwetting yet, but it sounds like he’s on his way. Some kids stop wetting overnight, but many slowly taper off. They may start by having an occasional dry night and over the course of weeks or months, it changes until they’re having an occasional wet night. As you probably already know, bedwetting runs in families. If your son’s older brother stopped wetting at age thirteen, there’s a good chance this son will as well. I know it’s difficult to watch our kids get older and older and yet the bedwetting continues. We start to wonder if it’ll ever end. It’s frustrating when we can’t just “fix it”. I’d continue doing what you’re doing. Have him wear the GoodNites to keep him dry and comfortable so he can get the rest his body needs. And take heart because it looks like the end is in sight for your son! For more information and loads of helpful tips for managing bedwetting, visit GoodNites.com.
