Dear Bob, the first thing you need to do is seek medical advice – any form of daytime incontinence after the age of 5 years needs to be investigated by a doctor. It is important that you resolve his daytime continence challenges first then you can address his nighttime wetting. In the meantime I would certainly recommend that you continue to use DryNites both during the day and night. To prevent leakage and reduce odour make sure your son changes these regularly during the day. All the best, Dr Cathrine
