My brother is 7 and still wets his bed every night. It is really getting him down as he cant go to sleepovers. He wears the biggest size nappies but they have started to leak. It is always full in the morning but about three times a week his nappy overflows and his bed and pajamas are soaked. We hoped he would just grow out of it so are unsure what to do. Also need advice on more absorbent nappies? Any help appreciated.

I was 11 when I finally stopped. I had to use an alarm that woke me up whe I started to pee myself. Maybe look into getting one for your brother. I stopped wearing pull up nappies when I was 9 or 10 because they were so expensive. I think this helped me get dry tbh because I didn't have the comfort of wearing a nappy if I was wet which was most nights.

Don't think I ever wet the bed lol. My mum said I never had a problem with that when I was a baby. I have a strong bladder.

I was about 7 or 8 I think but it wasn't every night, I know that it was a bit late but I had definitely stopped when I was still in primary school.

Thanks for responding. Was there anything you did to make it stop and do you have any tips on how to deal with it?

I think I just grew out of it. Avoiding liquids and going to the bathroom before bed and all those sensible things should help. And I'm assuming you have a mattress cover also?

Thanks he has a plastic cover on his mattress and wears nappies. Often his nappy leaks though and his sheets get wet. Was there anything you used?

Mattress cover. It wasn't plastic but it was waterproof, it was supposed to be discreet I think. I told my friends it was for dust mites or something because obviously I didn't want them knowing.

Good luck
