What age is too old for a child to be wetting the bed?
There isn't a "too old", every kid matures at their own rate.
It really varies with each child. Occasionally even older kids can have accidents in the night. I remember that I was seven when I had one or two. Both my daughters were late to potty train but then they never had any accidents. I know that boys usually take longer to master staying dry at night. If you are concerned about changing sheets frequently, put a wool blanket under a regular cotton sheet to prevent wetting a mattress. Wool naturally creates a barrier and acts sort of like a sponge. Good luck!
Our pediatrician told me that you subtract the child's age from 10. That number multiplied by 10 is the percentage of children in that age group that stll wet the bed.
At age 7, for example, 30% still wet the bed.
Heavy sleepers have the biggest problem. It's best to let your child feel wet when they get older rather than put them in overnight diapers or underwear. It trains them to wake up and use the bathroom. The exception would be for an overnight away from home.
Dear try this.......
Give your child two tea spoons honey in a glass of cold water before go to bed regularly. Wait and see for result.

I am 38 with a 7yr old son and married to the same supportive man. He has always wanted a second baby but I wasn't too sure. I am beginning to feel that time is running out for me. When will I be too old!

We have all heard of attachment parenting and co-sleeping etc. But is it too much to be breast feeding your almost 4 year old son??? In my former profession as an RECE I have met many women who have done this and I have seen the results of this process, not always so positive especially in later...
