    Default 9yr old still wetting bed

    We've been to a dr last year who said it isn't enough to warrant medication or an alarm.
    She can be dry for a good week then wet for 5-7 nights in a row sometimes twice a night.
    Has nothing to do with if she drinks at night or night as some nights she has a huge drink and is dry. Other nights no drink and wet.
    We are both at our wits end

    Do you try getting her up through the night? She's not being bullied or something at school is she?

    Yep I get her up before we got to bed. That's around 10pm. Occasionally she has already wet the bed by then..
    She hasn't been bullied as no kids know but she is due to go on a 4 night excursion in a couple months

    I would see another gp, ask for a referral to the local children's hospital. They often have clinics helping families deal with bed wetting.

    My eldest had terrible problems with constipation when she was 3. We were at our wits end and that was enough for our GP to refer us to a paed for help.

    The impact these things have on families cannot be ignored. I imagine it would be distressing for your daughter as well (I have a 10 year old DD so could imagine how she'd feel).

    Yes she gets frustrated. Doesn't say too much but I have never ever ever got mad at her for it. It's beyond her control.

    I'd definitely be getting in contact with a specialist and taking It from there. She's at an age where she'll want to have sleepovers and the fear of possibly wetting her bed will be awful. Even if she isn't having them she's old enough to probably know it's not something most kids her age still do.

    My nephew went on medication for bed wetting and honestly it was the best thing he ever did. He was exhausted from having to get up at night and change the sheets and his parents were beside themselves. My sister was really reluctant but her husband just did it. She was pretty furious initially until within a few days he was completely dry. I can't recall specifics but he wasn't on the medication for all that long then they weaned it. He never wet the bed again.
