Re: Sleepover worries

yeah, Miranda is 9, still wears overnights, (we're currently considering other options to get her to stop wetting, since just cutting off liquids hasn't worked.) and she's mentioned several times that she'll never be able to do a sleepover because she wets the bed still..

It's just plain sad. I would honestly just skip it. He'll quit wetting sooner or later and there will be plenty more time for sleepovers.

Re: Sleepover worries

I'd probably skip it. My 9yo DD still doesn't sleep through the night, she never has. (I know there was a thread awhile back, but I feel the need to reiterate that she really doesn't ever have a night where she sleeps without fully waking multiple times.) She doesn't do sleepovers because it's not something I want another parent to deal with on top of hosting a sleepover party. I also am weary about predators so I'd probably avoid it anyway. We always just say we have something going on so we can't make it.

Although I'm not sure 7yr old boys would care/notice?
I agree. If he wants to go, I wouldn't let a Pull-Up get in the way. I worked at a summer camp for many years and at age 7, wetting the bed was still pretty common. We just rounded up the sleeping bags to be washed if needed and went on with our day.

I'm still on the fence. DH set the alarm clock and woke DS up to pee in the middle of the night and dry bed this morning! So maybe we're on to something.
I think that it is great that he felt comfortable enough to share with his friend. That's an attitude to build on!

Re: Sleepover worries

I would talk to kiddo and ask kiddo if he wants to spend the night or if he'd rather you come get him at bedtime.

Re: Sleepover worries

If this were me, I wouldn't do the sleepover, mostly because you don't know the mother well. We don't deal with ADHD or bedwetting here but there is no way any of them would spend the night with someone we don't know well. I hope you can figure out something.

Fwiw dsd wet the bed nightly until 8, by 9 she is now nearly through it. But she never wet at a sleep over. I don't think she slept as soundly. She started sleepovers at 6
