Wet sheets: 6 Lauren:0

We are not winning.

I CANNOT seem to help Lauren stop wetting the bed!

I usually just put her in one of Krew's diapers (cuz he has chunky buns) and don't worry about it, but a few days ago, Grandpa told her no more diapers for her when the new baby is born. He will need them.

She believed him.

She does try. And she's a good sport about helping me strip the sheets every morning and clean up the mess. And the thing is, she always thinks that she made it and is so disappointed to see the sog. Awwww.

I asked her pediatrician and she said not to really worry about it till she's about 7. (Seven?!?) Well, I'd rather not put a second grader in diapers, or wash sheets every day for the next 2 or 3 years.

Just sayin'.

So the forum has officially opened.

Help me raise my daughter.

Or at least, help her have that happy face when she can tell me her sheets are dry.

And they actually will be.

No ideas from me. I have a sneaky suspicion this may be me with Kate in a couple years, so I hope you get it all figured out! :)

Is this a bad time to tell you that Addison woke up with a dry diaper this morning and went pee in the potty? Oh it is. Poop. I mean, Peep. Bahahahaaa. Good Lucky!

I keep checking back to see what others tell you. Jhett is three but we couldn't night train him for anything! He potty trained at 22 months but continued to wet each night. My peditrician always gave me LOTS of advice but none seemed to help. He kept telling us to go pee twice before bed. While getting ready for bed, and then the very last thing...after some quiet time like reading a book or something. Also, wake them up to go before you go to bed because taht's when accidents usually happen is first thing. If she wakes AT ALL it's usually to go potty so take her. I don't know though...good luck and do share your help when you find them.

Well...the twins still struggle and I am pretty sure I wet the bed once or twice when I was in the 6th grade but the good news is. I am almost 39 and haven't wet the bed in years.

Chalk it up to patience, and more patience...

We had the same problem with Brock. Have you heard of Wet Stop alarms? He was staying completely dry within a week and hasn't had a problem since. Amazing. Best $50 I ever spent!
