  1. Good morning. This is my first post here as I just came across this website. I would love to hear ANY tips, advise and suggestions on what I can do to help me with my son. He is 7.5 and I can count on 1 hand how many times he has woke up dry. I have tried limiting drinks after a certain time, trying to get him to go potty before bed (which he always says he doesn't have to go and more times than not refuses to even try), waking him when I go to bed and again in the middle of the night, consulting his pedi many times, alarms and nothing helps. I am currently using pull ups which he doesn't mind but...what do you do when the pull ups just don't cut it? He leaks out of them almost every night. I even tried the ones made for older kids but those are not much better. Even the smallest size they make are still too big for him. He is 7.5 and has been stuck at 38 lbs for the longest time (he has a high metabolism and his pedi assures me that he is perfectly healthy). What does everyone do with slightly older kids when pull ups just don't work?? I know its not his fault and I never get upset with him over it but...I wont lie, I am very frustrated over the extra laundry its causing. And, he HATES waking up in a soaking wet bed in the morning. HELP!! I just don't know what else to do anymore. He is a very heavy sleeper and I am patiently waiting for him to out grow it. His pedi has said many times that's its still quite normal for kids to still wet the but till 8 or 9 years old.
