Advice to Dealing With Bed-wetting

My Seven-Year-Old...

This post was submitted by jgandrews in The Mommy Club group.

What are your suggestions or advice on how to get your child to stop bedwetting? Mine is seven and has done it ever since he was a toddler. I've taken him to the doctor several times and all they say is that it's normal, nothing to drink after a certain time, and no disciplining him (because he's not doing it on purpose). I don't get mad at him, because I myself remember being in elementary and having accidents awake or asleep every now and then until about 4th grade!

Is this hereditary? Should I take him to a specialist? I ask him why he does it and all he says is that he doesn't feel when he's going.

I'm not sure what to do anymore? Please help?
