11 year old son is a deep sleeper. I used the $100 alarm, IT RINGS RINGS AND HE IS STILL SLEEPING SO HE DOESNT MAKE IT TO THE TOILET.

Then, he gets up AFTER WETTING HIS UNDERWEAR.

And, he switches to a dry one, and the cycle repeats....

IS THERE ANYONE ELSE EXPERIENCING THIS?



Anyone found a solution?? The alarm is not working.

The only solution we found was time. Eventually they grow out of it.
One child wet nightly until age 14 and he was already 6ft tall in a full adult body.
My other bedwetter stopped at 9 1/2 . Both stopped suddenly out of the blue.
It’s very genetic so I knew it was to be expected.

My 8 year old still often wets the bed, especially shabbos night when we have sweet drinks. Its a challenge for me with the laundry and bed changing and hard for him because he's embarrassed of it.

I guess its just a waiting game What

I think it's often genetic and they eventually grow out of it. My kids wore pull ups until they did. I couldn't handle washing bedding every single day. I didn't find the alarm to work.

I have a friend who's kids are all super deep sleepers. It's totally genetic, and they all wet the bed until they were in their mid teens. Their dad was the same way as a child.

It's just one of those really annoying things in life, that you have to ride out until it clears up on it's own.

I think the deep sleep explanation is a red herring. The autonomic nervous system is supposed to shut off the need to pee at night after a certain age. If one is not able to make it all night without peeing, that is a defect in the autonomic nervous system, or somewhere upstream or downstream of that. Some other causes (that feed into nervous system dysfunction) include blood sugar issues, chronic strep, b vitamin deficiencies, etc. I’ve seen moms report that high doses of b1 and b12 together with magnesium fixed this for them.

I’m still getting past the idea that adults still use the word make for urinating or peeing.

It’s genetic and physical and there’s nothing you can do about it but wait for them to grow out of it. Ask your pediatrician. Put him in adult diapers or in pull-ups and wait. He will grow out if eventually.

Thanks for all the replies.

I guess he'll probably outgrow it later, and yes, its probably genetic..

And, I'm not surprised that here where anyone has a chance to HELP someone with advice/experience etc...you took the time to make a comment like this....what's the purpose?

I hope you are not as critical in real life.

But, if you are, then maybe it's time to criticize yourself for wanting to make a negative comment instead of using your words to help/support/uplift ppl. Instead.

I have that with my kids to, and yes it’s hereditary. It’s usually outgrown by puberty. Nothing to do about it until then.

I’m trying to be helpful. An adult should not use that word when speaking with adults.

Omg I can't believe you felt the need to comment. As well as the fact that you are wrong: the OP says "make it to the toilet" not "to make" as you misunderstood (!!!!!)

Also had this with my kids and yes it is genetic and runs in our family. I would wake them to use the bathroom before I went to sleep (or after they were asleep for a few hours), which definitely helped (not that it made them outgrow it faster, but it did mean less laundry). They eventually outgrew it and started waking up themselves or just sleeping through the night without wetting.

My pediatrician told me it would end with puberty, and he was right

Same. Ds is now 8, almost 9. Also tried the alarms, doesn't work. I did take him to a specialist to make sure all is well. Once that was done, I'm ok waiting it out. I only feel bad that it gives him a complex and he can't go to overnight camp until he's past it.

Have you checked for allergies? dairy and gluten allergies can cause this. All of the late bed wetters I know turned out to be gluten intolerant

My sonis now 12. Still wets bed nightly wears pull-ups.
We did a sleep study (for something else). We removed his tonsils - they said it would help. No diff. That wasn’t the cause of the bed wetting. His ent wants us to go to a urologist now. My pediatrician very strongly discouraged and wants us to wait it out.
Last year my son started taking bed wetting pills - which my pediatrician doesn’t like - but I did some convincing. It did wonders for his self confidence. And works really well.
I’m told it can be genetic and I know it runs in our families.

Puberty actually causes the body to physically change, and different muscles become stronger, and nerves develop more fully. If the issue is genetic, then most doctors say not to panic until after your child is 14.

My friend's kids did have the occasional rare accident when they went away to dorm, but by then the kids knew how to take care of it without embarrassment. Dorms are used to this. It's especially likely to happen at first when the kid is homesick, or after staying up late studying for a big test.

It's a nisayon to be sure, but it's important to reassure your child that it will eventually get better, and that it's not their fault. It is what it is, and the most important thing is to handle it calmly and get on with life.
