this morning all three kids have wet their beds. most mornings both girls are wet, they are 13 now and they were dry at night from age 7 then a few years ago they started to wet most nights, they have tried tablets nasal sprays neither have worked, i can't see the alarm system working as it would wake everyone up and that would be too much to cope with right now.
i have spoken to school nurse and the pead but they only came up with the meds which did not work. i need to get this sorted as they will be starting their periods soon.
DS only wets once a fortnight ish so not to bad. any tips ?

I was wondering if your girls have known how ill their dad is for the last couple of yrs and this is how they react ... after all we all react differently.
My dd, still has damp smelly knickers every day and she is 12, we have been down the same route as you and it is not working so well, so they are not saying that she has to do her pelvic floor muscles every day.

i don't think they are picking up on the stress yet, i don't know what started them off but they have been doing it 3/4 years.
i can just see me trying to get my 2 to do pelvic floor excercises, now you see if the tweenies did a programme on it then we would be fine wink

DS1 was dry then wet his bed for a year or so. IN his case I eventually decided he liked it. It stopped when he decided he no longer liked his waterproof duvet. I told him he could have a different duvet if he kept a nappy on all night (he used to strip then wet the bed). he did and is now dry again (although insists on a nappy).

Amazed he understood the bargain (a sign of how much he's come on I think) but he did!

my girls are obbsessed by all thing baby and they would like nothing more than to wear a nappy Heck they would like a dummy too, althou they never had one as babies.
what do i do with them? Abbey has like a nappy rash all the time that just never goes away for very long.

Hmm, I wonder what would happen if you tried the plastic sheet thing. Would your girls hate it, sounds bad, but I would of thought maybe you could make wetting the bed as uncomfortable as possible for them, by that I don't mean that you verbaly make it uncomfortable, or belittle them in any way or leave them in a wet bed, I just mean trying the not so nice bedding thing like Gess said might be a good idea.

Donna Williams suggested making the bed as uncomfortable as possible when wet (I think you use kylies like me- which are great but quite nice when wet in a squelchy sort of way!) I culdn;t face taking the kylies off and going the whole plastic route as I couldn't bear the shouting and screaming in the middle of the night when ds1 woke in a puddle - luckily he just began to dislike the duvet. I do think the plastic sheet thing would have worked quite quickly- I just didn't have the energy to tackle it- I susepct you might not either
