    Default Bed wetting

    DSS is 9 1/2 yes old and has recently started wetting the bed at his mum's house. So far not at ours. He's here almost 50/50 but did just spend around 4 weeks straight at his mums (half school hols) which is when it began.
    Anyone got any ideas/advice on what might be causing it or what strategies we might teach him for when/if it happens again?

    Could he have a UTI?
    Does he enjoy school? Perhaps he could be a little nervous about starting back? ( could explain it happening in school holidays).
    Has he mentioned having night terrors or anything?

    Sorry that's all I can think of.

    My 13 year old occasionally wets his bed, happens once every 6 to 12 months.
    I would just kinda ignore it, don't make a fuss and just let him know you're there if he wants to talk.
    If you make a fuss about I find they get embarrassed and shut down and won't talk or tell you if it happens again.
    Other than that maybe try and talk to his mother to see if something happened to trigger it.

    Maybe just take him to the doctors for a check up to make sure he hasn't picked up an infection or something.
