I was just talking about this the other day with some family. My older brother was a bed wetter, my kids' BD was a bedwetter, and so was their aunt and their grandpa. They all grew out of it between 9-10yrs of age. My son is a bedwetter, and it drives me crazy with the laundry and everything, but we try not to make a big deal about it either. He can't help it. he tries. So, we're just holding on and waiting it out.

Ohh the poor thing Hopefully she will grow out of this soon. Nothing wrong with the special undies. My cousin use to wet the bed all the time. My aunt took him to the doc and come to find out he had a very small bladder. They did surgery to then the blader linning and he hasnt had an issue since. I think he was 6 at the time

Quoting Brookelynn's Mommy:" Yeah I am trying to not make a big deal out of it because I know she feels bad about it and is embarrassed. ... [snip!] ... with that, and actually was excited to go to bed today because she got to wear them and isn't worried about peeing the bed."
Psychological issues could play a factor. Also, just having a really deep sleep, which from your explanation of her "waking" up like that, sounds like it could be. That was my issue. I was just such a deep sleeper I wouldn't get the memo I needed to get up.

My dd is 5.5 and still bed wets. We got her some cloth diapers so they're like undies but padded. She likes those. She doesn't really mind except once in awhile shell get embarrassed. But not often. She knows she can't help it. They just have to outgrow it. We take her to the chiropractor too. There's a vertebrae that can get out and press on a nerve that can cause bed wetting. It helps some but not consistently. I don't make a big deal of it cause I know it's just something to outgrow. I don't make her not drink or anything. It's awful to sleep with dry mouth. It doesn't help anyway.

Just an update... My daughter has been wearing her 'special undies' for a week now. She has wet in them every night except for once, but we are both a lot happier because we both can sleep through the night and not have to wake up in puddles. She likes them because it doesn't make her feel embarrassed or guilty about wetting the bed. It's working for us right now, so its what we are doing! Now lately I she has been having many accidents during the day because she just gets too busy to stop and go potty. She does fine outside of the house when she is at school or we are gone, but when she is home is when she has her accidents usually. So, now to start regulating her daytime bathroom breaks!
