My nearly 7 year old is still in pull ups at night, how normal is this at this age? Time to visit GP? We've tried without buts wets bed several times in night. Tried no drinks an hour or more before, still no joy. He really wants to be out of them.

I think you should, 7 is the age they start considering bedwetting unusual and will take it seriously.

my 6 year old is in night time nappies, and has never had a dry night i visted the GP with him not too long ago and was told they won't even think about doing anything until he's 7.

We have bedwetting clinics run locally. You can be referred by the school nurse from 5 1/2 for help. Might be worth discussing with them rather than GP.

Boys are often later than girls and need a hormone to kick in.
