Wondering if anyone can give me some advice or just tell me this is normal..
My DS1 is turning 5 next weekend and he still wets the bed at night.
We stopped putting night nappies on him about 6 months ago but we recently moved to a new house about 6 weeks ago.
Before we moved, he would often wake in the middle of the night and go to the toilet. He had accidents sometimes, because he is a really heavy sleeper and I assume the need to pee isn't strong enough to wake him.
So we stopped letting him have his drink bottle in bed and it seemed to help.
But since moving, he will have an accident every single night in bed unless we wake him at least one time at 11pm or midnight to make him go. He will stand there practically asleep and pee in the toilet then stumble back to bed and fall back into deep sleep.
I'm not sure how much longer we can keep doing this. It seems ridiculous that we have a 5yr old child that we need to wake in the middle of the night EVERY night.
He goes to the toilet right before bed (around 8pm) and the last drink he has is usually around 7. Should we be cutting him off from drinks earlier? I'm thinking that considering he won't wake up himself, we need to make the last water much earlier but it will be painful.
