Hi Claire, This must be incredibly frustrating. Leakage often results from improper fit, which can occur if your sons DryNites are either too small or too large. Check that they are fitting him properly around the leg. You can try and reduce his urine output by limiting drinks high in sugar as well as the amount of dairy or citrus he drinks in the afternoon/evening as these are known to stimulate the kidneys. If you were at all concerned about the amount of urine he is producing I would certainly recommend you consult with your GP. You should also use this opportunity to discuss the different bedwetting treatment options available. All the best. Regards, Dr Cathrine
