Excellent advice from Dr Mom

I hope Dr Mom doesn’t think I plagiarized her!

Relax. Don’t make a big deal of it. Reassure your child that she will outgrow it. Let her use pull-ups at night. Let go of your guilt and provide emotional support.

Aside from ensuring that your child uses the bathroom before going to bed, let go of your worry and let nature take its course.

If your child suddenly starts wetting the bed after she had previously been dry [or] has other symptoms occurring simultaneously (such as increased thirst, pain with urination, daytime accidents, or behavioral problems), she should be evaluated by her doctor as this could signify other conditions.

In addition, it’s always prudent to have your child evaluated by his doctor for bed-wetting just to ensure there are no coexisting medical conditions.

As they say, read the whole thing.
