My son is 9 years old this July but sad to note that at this stage he bed wets. When he was younger this rarely happened. But at this age, he does. I'm alarmed. Based on observation when my son uses gadgets like the cellular phone and tablet for his games for 30 minutes or more, he is expected to suffer another bedwetting. I wonder if the use of gadget is related to his bedwetting. I need help.

My son turns 10 on Tuesday. He has been struggling with wetting the bed his whole life. I have done almost everything possible except for medications. I have limited his fluid intake after four pm, he is not allowed to drink soda unless it's a special occasion, I make sure he uses the bathroom right before bedtime, and I've even been using the bed pads since he is getting too big for the pull ups, yet he continues to wet the bed. I know he gets embarrassed when he has sleepovers due to his bed wetting.
