Hi 263dlt1010 and welcome to ehealth: I am not sure of a medical reason, but I want to throw a few thoughts out for you...First, he may do this as subconsciously he knows he is going to do it and be upset....Second, our son also did this...Truthfully, I think he was so big that I had to diaper him with a towel...Probably near 7....What we did was offer him a nickle if he did not wet the bed...That nickle did it for us...We had tried drugs from the doctor and all this did was to make him off the wall all night...He was so wound up that he was a mess...Kept us up all night....Seeing a nickle may not interest your son, you could set some toy that he really likes as a special surprise...

These are just my suggestions on this problem....Take care...

He may be harboring a very bad secrect that someone may be doing someghing to him. Are you leaving him along with any babysitter, family members, is he spending the night with neighbors..etc. Don't be aghast, ask him if anyone is touching him or doing things to him.
you may want to have him checked out by a urologist as well to see if there is any medical correlation in his bedwetting.

Good Luck,

Hi again263dlt1010.....A child can have terrible nightmares...Just a sudden scene of horror can bother them for a long time...Have you tried talking to him at night about wonderful things...Tell him stories or reading him something like "The Boxcar Children", my favorite book from childhood, to get his mind in another place in time...Then possibly going that route I spoke about...Make it something real nice...Something that he dearly wants...Something toy related that keeps his mind at ease....

I hope that one of these things work...I share your pains as I have walked this walk in life...Keep me advised...Take care and have a wonderful 2011....

Caroline

P.S...You have a lovely family....
