THERE’S NOTHING MORE NORMAL THEN A KID THIS AGE WETTING THEIR BED
It’s normal for kids in this age group to wet the bed.
If they’re bedwetting it may be because their bladder isn’t yet big enough to store all the wee they produce at night time. Or it may be because the connection between their bladder and their brain is not yet fully developed. In short, they’re too young to be expected to stay dry throughout the night.
Try not to compare your child with other children in your family, mother’s group or social circle. As with most developmental milestones they all get there in the end and it’s clear that the time between achieving daytime dryness and night time control is different for every child. While some two to four-year-olds achieve dry nights in a matter of weeks, others take months or even years to get there.

HOW TO ENCOURAGE NIGHT TIME DRYNESS
Time is often the best course of action. Most children of this age will outgrow bedwetting on their own.
In the meantime, keep your son or daughter in DryNites® Pants as these keep your child dry and comfortable even if they do pee at least once in their sleep. What’s more, staying dry will help their self-esteem and confidence while reducing the washing workload for mum and dad.

My 4 year old girl is still in nappies for bedtime, I have gone the last 2 nights in undies and so far so good but I need to keep going in throughout the night making sure if she needs to go toilet. Is 4 to young to stop wearing bedtime nappies and any advice on how to get through bedtime wetting.
Alex (girl) was diagnosed as having low serotonin and is on a serotonin uptake inhibitor at two years of age, this has been a huge success in her day to day functioning (much more regulated) but she is no where near dry at night. In fact she almost always wets the bed if she has a short daytime nap. Is this related to the serotonin issue…does she not produce vasopressin in the same way that she does not secrete serotonin? Any suggestions?
