how did you help your kid stop wetting? My 3 wets her bed and pants any tips?
JillRogers ... Welcome Welcome Welcome ...
Seems i remember limiting fluids a few hours prior to bed time and getting the baby up through the nite, to potty.
Don't wait until she has to potty, take her before and let her sit a few minutes ...
Along with what Sister Destee shared, i would look for the pattern. My nephew always seemed to wet the bed btw certain hours. So i figured out when was the best time to swoop him off to the bathroom.

Sister, you are now in the company of Destee's finest, for real...These sisters will be of more assistance than I could ever be, but I did enjoy the Spanking Project Jill, for real. So, along with these sisters and MsInterpret, I leave you in good hands.
The only thing needed is for you to go to your email address and say yes to my Friendship Request, cause I think I've earned it...take care.
see if avoiding frightening movies before bedtime or disturbing images (or anytime for that matter), help too, not to suggest that your children sit around watching the tube, I do not know you, nor them, however studies do show an overlap or connection..
you may try waking the child up an hour or so after they go to bed, or periodically throughout the night..
ask them questions to see if they may feel threatened, afraid, or stressed out about anything..
some too say they may just simply grow out of it..
I'd recommend limiting soft drinks, or any sugary drinks,
* you may want to have tested for jr diabetes*?
but know matter how frustrating it can get, do not yell, or come down on them by making them feel ashamed, they are quite aware and do not need us to remind them..
Well, I agree with the other posters. Make sure your daughter doesn't have a lot of fluids before she sleeps, and have her empty her bladder as well. I also woke my kids up too and had them go to the bathroom.
Though, maybe putting a pull-up on (glorified diaper), when she goes to bed. Though, still treat it like underwear; and you can also put on her underwear over it so she will think she has underwear on instead of her pull-up maybe? Plus, you won't continue cleaning up the accidents...it's work in progress! Trust..
A few tips i did that help me in training my kids to the potty
stop all liquids at 7PM / notice signs and movement in the night
often children will tighten up , wiggle about ! also for start on the hour
check but don't awaken them on the hour for you taken there sleep away
once they go before bed and you kinda catch it in the night you good
it indeed is work in progress. Also allow them to do the flushing !
my wife and I teamed up and took turns getting up and taking them to
the bathroom during the night.. it was just a matter of creating a new
habit.. We also made it a point to not make it an disciplinary issue but a
functional issue.. so, no anger.. no humiliation.. just patience and diligence.
keep in mind too, she be only 3
Let me add doing the day just when you give the child something to drink
take them often to the bathroom and let them sit a few min.
notice there action and face expression when they go on there selves
it would help you know when they about to wet
