The 3 C's to Stop Enuresis (Bed-wetting)

My son had a problem with Enuresis until he was about 8 years old. We tried the Moisture Detecting Electrodes and all we got was a tired and sleep deprived kid that couldn't concentrate in school (due to being tired) and the same with us parents. That went on for about 6 months and it was horrible. All he learned was how to make his bed rather quickly. For the record, I am a big fat "NAY" to that method.

Then I read about "The 3 C's to Stop Enuresis". They are Caffeine, Cola, and Chocolate. So we tried it - no chocolate milk afer 4pm, and no chocolate ice cream for dessert. Result: no wet bed. After about 2 weeks of juice (no limits, as much as he wanted) we let him have chocolate milk. Result: wet bed. Went back to juice only in the late`afternoon, but let him have chocolate ice cream. Wet bed again. If we gave him plain milk or strawberry milk, no wet bed. Same if we let him have any other flavor of ice cream than chocolate. Then he went to a birthday party; chocolate cake with chocolate frosting ~ yes, a wet bed. After 6 weeks of tracking what he ate & drank I found the only nights he was wet was if he had chocolate, caffine, or cola after 4pm. Needless to say, from then on there were no more problems.
