This is a subject I don't normally talk about due to privacy of the offending party. However, I am at my wits end. Yes, it is a peeing issue.
My young son pees the bed about every night. I put pullups on him. They don't work! I have tried many brands and he pees through them and onto his bed. He wears a pull up every night and will leave the wet ones in every corner of his bedroom unless directed to throw them away every day.
Yes, I limit fluids after dinner and have tried getting him out of bed and into the bathroom before I go to bed (after midnight). I have bought more plastic covers then I can count (he tears them after awhile). I have bought plastic sheets that the elderly or sick typically use (he moves them around so they are useless).
I have tried to give him ownership. Bought extra sheets and have told him to change his bedding when he has an accident. He will not. He will sleep in his pee for days on end if you don't check his sheet daily. I have given that over to my dear husband. He will sleep on the floor unless you tell him specifically to put a sheet back on. He has slept on the floor and peed on the wood floors and I can't get the odor out.
I have talked to his doctor and she isn't concerned. She says that he is still within the age where this is normal (he will be 8 next month).
I am surprised that his mattress hasn't fallen apart given all the bleach I have poured on it. I don't see a reason to replace it since he hasn't slowed down.
I am tired of doing laundry. I don't understand how the odor doesn't bother him. I wish he would change his sheet himself and take care of the issue. Naturally, I will be delighted the day he stops peeing the bed!
Any suggestions out there on how to deal with this issue? Any routines someone can suggest? I am contemplating having him change his sheet every day, dry or not. Not sure....oh, I just plain don't know what do to at this time.
