DS2 is still not dry at night. He is 7.3yrs and does have a bowel problem (it is three time larger than would be considered normal so presses on his bladder causing weeing, not much warning to get to the toilet, and when deeply asleep, not getting signals in time to wake up) so we are at the stage of either keeping him in pyjama pants or lifting him. he wants to stop wearing 'pull-ups', I tend to agree as he is old enough to be aware of it now and be embarrassed, even tho I have explained why it happens, but the lifting is not working well either.

last night, due to us having illness in the house (dreaded swine-flu<sob>), lifting him was forgotten, and he wet the bed. I remembered while up with DH (he soaked the bed in sweat with high temp......lovely, not!) and went in to him (DS2 that is), and he was lying in sodden duvet (why why why do they wrap themselves up like cacoons when they sleephmm).

I got him up, but he didn;t wake up very well.............while changing the bed, sent him of too the toilet to strip off and have a wee. He did as I asked, I got him into clean PJ's and he got back into bed, and I then went to toilet myself.....only to find that he had indeed stripped off, only to put his wet stuff down the toilet instead of in the wash basketshock (and I suspect he also then pee'd on it all<<boak>>).

the only saving grace is that he didn;t flush the loo after............that would NOT have made for a fun night.


laugh, groan, sob into coffee??

please help me see the funny side.....

Bear with me her...

A friend's little brother used to sleepwalk to the toilet, take his clothes off, put them in the loo and pee on them..... and then lock the door and wake tho whole house trying to get out (in his half-asleep mind!)

So laugh...grin at least he didn't lock himself in the bathroom!

sorry, on phone to flame, missed the grin

I would be doing all three.

It's one of those situations where you are just not quite sure what do - like when a newborn vomits all over you what do you clean first - baby, yourself, house...grin

not sure if this will help but i was a bed wetter till about the age of your ds and my mum took me to a clinic.

They gave us a mat that was attached to an alarm, the mat went under the sheet and when i got a bit of wet of it the alarm would go off waking me up and then i would go to the toilet.

after about 3 months my bladder taught my brain when i needed to go and no more wet nights.

just a suggestion smile

Well, if it happened to me I would groan and moan, but seeing as it didn't happen to me I can see the funny side and laugh grin

(I'll probably get my comeuppance for being so mean by having all three kids come down with D&V in the middle of the night tonight...)
