DD 3 1/2 has been TT for about a year and dry at night for about 3 months.  For the last week she has wet the bed every single night.  We have no idea what could be causing this, her night time routine has not changed.  We've started putting her back in nappies for the last couple of nights (after having to wash all of the bed linen including the doona every day for 5 days) and they are also wet.  Does anyone have any idea what causes this?

Colder weather here too.  Start with warmer pjs or blankets

DD1 was TT at night-time by 2.5 as well, and in a year probably had less than a handful of wet beds.  

She then, at 3.5 started wetting the bed again, and now, at 4.5 has probably had less than 20 dry nights in the last year.  

I'm so sick of washing that about a week ago, I gave up and put her back in DryNites pullups.  That was after a night where I took her to the toilet 3 times, as well as immediately before bed and she wet the bed THREE times!!

It wouldn't be so frustrating if I knew she'd never been dry overnight, but she did it for over a year!

You're not alone OP.

My 7 year old will still occasionally wet the bed if he is really really tired.

Thank you for the replies - I hadn't considered the weather.  We might try some warmer pjs or flannelette sheets tomorrow night and see how she goes.  She only ever has milk with her dinner and mostly doesn't have anything else to drink.

Lynnemine - we are really sick of the washing as well and it's usually 1am when she does it.  We always have to give her a shower which sometimes wakes DS up so it been disruptive to us all.

Just something to watch out for - a little boy I worked with started wetting the bed and having accidents suddenly after being tt for quite a while; it turned out he had developed diabetes and had the excessive thirst and frequent urination related to this. Something to think about.


What CherryAmes said.  One of my closest friend's DS started to do this and it turned out he had developed type 1 diabetes.  He was unable to quench his thirst and was drinking way more water than normal.  

Not wanting to cause alarm but if your DD is wanting to drink more fluid than normal, it might be worth a trip to your GP to rule out anything more serious than just the cooler nights.

Good luck
