I know i've already asked this but I need to ask it again. Plz read details

my little sister still wears pull ups at night time and she's 11 years old. I feels so bad for her because our aunt dosnt like to deal with it and she won't invite her up to Canada unless she learns. I really don't think that's fair but I'm going to try to help her. she's such a happy person but she feels guilty that she wears pull ups. PLEASE HELP!!!! and iv got a little less that a year to help her fix it

Sorry your little sis needs to talk to a doctor and maybe a mental health professional.

Have her use the bathroom right before bed, if you have an alarm clock you should set it to go off every other hour or two. Each time it goes off bring her to the bathroom to see if she needs to use it. It might be a pain in the but, but eventually she should get used to it and either wake up on her own when she needs to go, or be able to hold it until morning.

My son is 9... And he occasionally wets the bed. I have seen a dr several times. They all say it's normal. They are sleeping so deeply their bodies don't wake up. We do several things that help... But if your not with her it's not much you can do. His dr says there is medication for it but it has bad side effects and he is certain he will outgrow it. Is it every day with your sister?

So sorry about your sister. She should go to a pediatric urologist. She may have a very small bladder. My niece had the same problem.

No one, I mean no one knows she wears these but family members. She shouldn't feel guilty or embarrassed about this. She will outgrow it. In the meantime just ease up on the fluids a couple of hours before bed time.
