    bedwetting after a certain age is a sign of emotional distress. I would have him see a doctor and perhaps, ask him questions about his internal life. how is he feeling? is there anything wrong? remind him that he can tell you anything without you being "mad," encourage a open line of dialogue

        I agree that it could be a sign of stress or something emotional going on. It could also be more medically based. Have you talked to his doctor about it? He might have some more concrete ideas or want to run a few tests.

    12. Bed Wetting Disorder:

    Bed wetting is normally a problem of children; some children wet the bed even after the age of seven during sleep, this is bed wetting. Take two raisins, remove its seed and insert 1-1 black pepper seed in it; give it to the child to eat before going to sleep at night for 2-3 weeks. It removes bed-wetting problem.

    There a number of reasons some children wet the bed at age 11, the most common of which includes late brain development. This is not unusual in children who have ADHD. The brain normally releases a natural hormone at night which reduces urine production and causes the bladder muscles to retain urine in the bladder. Some children do not produce enough of this hormone and this results in bed wetting. They generally grow out of it by 12 to 14. Checking with your child's doctor is important to make sure there are no other medical issues is important. Your doctor may recommend trying a number of options: 1) using a bed wetting alarm stitched into the underwear or pajamas to wake the child the instant they wet - it retrains the brain, and can be quite effective for some; 2) the doctor may prescribe a Desmopressin to reduce urine production; 3) another option is to have your child wear protective nightwear (example Pampers makes what they call "UnderJams" in a variety of sizes.

    Hello Mandyjj05
    I am so sorry to hear your son has been feeling bad. It must be so difficult.

    Many kids actually wet the bed until their early teens. Often, kids who bedwet, have parents or other family members who did that too, when they were kids. It is often inherited.The good news is that many kids stop wetting the bed every year by themselves, with no treatment.


    However, if this is a new issue, then it is important to see your doctor. Bedwetting that starts when a child is older (and when a child has been dry for a while)may be due to other problems. See a doctor if this is the case, to make sure there is nothing going on with his urinary tract or other systems.The doctor may do some tests to rule these other issues out.

    If this has been happening all his life, bedwetting alarms may help. These alarms wake up your child at the first sign of wetness, so that he can go to the bathroom, without wetting the bed too much. Also, for sleepovers, some medicines may help temporarily.

    If you are worried, see your doctor about these possible options. The most important thing to remember is that in most cases, kids outgrow this.
    Hope things get better soon.
