My five year old boy is totally potty trained. He started school in Sep and seems fine with it all, and is outwardly a settled and a confident little chap. Recently, though, he's started wetting the bed at nights. We make sure he's had a long pee before he settles, but it's been three nights out of the last five now. Could it be anything medical? Or might it be psychological? Should we be worried or just tell him to try harder?
I think your little boy is still within the norm. This is what Babycentre says: "Plenty of children age three years and four years still need a night nappy, and bed-wetting is considered to be normal up to the age of five. One in six five-year-olds wets the bed either occasionally or regularly." Not sure you should be doing about it though (use special night pull ups?). Hopefully other posters will have suggestions.
