When will my 12 year old son stop wetting the bed?

Given your sons age it is very unlikely that he will be able to achieve nighttime continence on his own. If you have not already done so I would highly recommend that you make an appointment for your son with your GP and ask to be referred to a continence specialist who will be best placed to help your son to become dry at night. To assist the doctor you can start a record about the frequency of his wetting and any other factors that may be important, for example, is there a family history of bedwetting? In the meantime, reassure your son that this is in no way his fault and with the right support he will soon be dry! Kind Regards, Dr Cathrine
