Isaak Did the Laundry

The last two weeks I was getting so sick of doing laundry. Mostly it was Isaak's. He kept wetting the bed. He was in a stage of doing that. It's dry for a long stretch, then wet, wet, wet. I know we're not supposed to make a big deal out of it.

To be honest Isaak loves tasks. The next time he wet the bed, Isaak happily did his own laundry.

I have an old school washer and dryer; my laundry room isn't pretty. It does the job; just like Isaak did his job. Oh and Daddy helped Isaak. He didn't carry the basket up and down the steps, nor did he do the settings of everything himself. He did however make his bed. He didn't do too bad of a job. It all came untucked, but it didn't matter; it was the thought that counted right?

Any tips on night training?

Isaak goes potty right before bed. We wake Isaak up at 10:30 or 11 to go right before we go to bed. When he's in the bed wetting stretch even that doesn't matter. We also limit his liquids after dinner. That doesn't seem to matter either. I do see a pattern: When he drinks a lot during the day and eats well, that's when he wets.

Pull-Ups? I think it's awesome that he did his own laundry. :) Wish I had some helpful hints for you. I haven't been brave enough to let Ash sleep without a Pull-Up yet.

I had to use Pull-ups at night for my little guy until he was about 6. He was just wet, wet, wet at night. Funny thing is that even now as a young adult, he can obviously sleep through the night, but he doesn't have a huge bladder capacity in general.

I have no idea how to stop bed wetting. Wish I could help but I was a late bed wetter too... so what does that tell you.

Having chores is good for kids. Someday he will make some lucky wife a good husband, especially if he knows how to do the laundry.

Bedwetting-One of my sons wet the bed up until I finally took him to see the Dr when he was 9. I never did before because others in the family said some do that and he'd outgrow it.
The Dr. said his bladder was smaller and gave him a nasal spray that helped him hold it during the night which in turn increased the size. Not sure how it all worked (its been many years) but it did. Within just a couple months he was off of it and able to drop the lined sleeping bag, the pullups and the emotions that went with not being able to have or go to sleep overs without the chance of being discovered.
Good luck!

I do not have advice, but I do know that they make these things that they can wear and it wakes them up when they need to go? not sure what it really does, but i have seen them before... good luck...
