4 1/2 Years But Still Wetting Himself

My son is 5 soon but he is still wetting himself regularly wherever he is. He was dry in the day for months but has gone back to having accidents. He has not been dry in the night once yet either. He says he doesn't know he's doing it. I have tried ignoring, punishing, rewarding, EVERYTHING, but nothing is working. The doctor says nothing wrong with him & partly our fault but I can't see how and don't know what do now as loosing patients.

I am in the exact same situation- school said it was 'normal' and another boy is doing the same. Trying avoiding wheat then dairy for the poo issues, but he is always coming home wet now - I think it laziness TBH...

My 4yo DS is doing the same thing.

He goes to the toilet regularly, but wets himself in between. He doesn't seem to be aware he is doing it, and never tells me when he is wet.

He was mostly dry in the day until recently, but we moved house this summer and he started at a new preschool. He's been very unsettled due to all the changes, and that's when he started wetting himself more regularly as well.

He seems to be happy at his new preschool, and his behaviour is improving, but he just seems to have lost control of his bladder... will watch this thread for any advice.

Hi all sorry not been updating you been extremely busy but just to let you know that nothing has changed, he is still going to the toilet regularly but is still also wetting himself. I can't even bring myself to take him out of pull ups at night either because of this. He starts reception at his new school in January & don't want him to get picked on.

I have exactly the same. Don't worry about Reception at all, in my son's class of 20 their are three regular wetters (ds included, sigh!) and the teacher and TA's will have seen it all a thousand times before. In fact his teacher has already said to me the last time she had a class without a wetter was six years ago. It's totally normal at this age, and expecially common in boys. Similarly with the night wetting. Ds is 5 in Febuary and is absolutely nowhere near going dry at night, in fact his night nappies are heavier thn his two year old brothers. Much sympathy.
