I have an 8-year-old son, my third and last child, who was potty trained at 3-years-old. He wore pull-ups to bed until he was 6/7 years old because he could not and still cannot wake up in the middle of the night to pee. He pees the bed just about every night. He pees in his pants during the day. Mostly because he does not stop what he is doing to go to the bathroom. I thought it might be medical but he has never peed in his pants at school, ever. I have used reward system, I have taken things away from him. I have tried restricting his drink intake as far as stopping drinks 2 hours before bedtime and going potty at least twice before bed. I have woken him up at night to try and go potty but he sleeps so deeply that he cannot wake up. I do not know what to do anymore. I need some help. This morning he was up at 6:30am, got dressed, ate breakfast, brushed his teeth and as I was putting on his shoes to leave for school I noticed he had peed his pants! Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thank you so much.View Thread
Hi, My daughter is 17 yrs old and she is 5'9.5". I am 5'8" and my husband is 6'2". She is done growing now, but based on her growth I would guess you might get another inch or two. Your doctor may be able to give you a better estimate. She stopped growing a year or a year and a half ago. You never know though. Good luck with pursuing your modeling career! View Thread
