I was never a bed wetter when I was a kid. In fact, I have wanted to as an adult because my bursting bladder wakes me up every night, and I just wanted night where I slept straight through. Of course alcohol does help me sleep and some times I wet, but not healthy.
What I have found to consistently work is wearing for a few hours when I get home from work to get my body used to going as soon as even the slightest urge comes. Then I drink catnip tea a hour before bed, go to bathroom, pad up and then drink 1 1/2 - 2 bottles of water.
I tell you, it is nice to sleep through the night... I wake up refreshed and pretty wet! I would love to know if this works for anyone else.
