Is it only at nap or bedtime? He might need some more time for his body to mature. You can try limiting fluids before nap and bed and see if that helps.

I have the same problem with my 4 1/2 year old daughter. I'm still trying to find the words to use with her to explain the feeling of having to go. People here at CafeMom had a good point, they are so used to being wet, its normal to them. My daughter does have a possible medical issue but it isn't all the possible constent leak but in her case, its just being lazy. When I ask her why she goes in her pull up, she tells me she is "too busy" I thought it would be easier to potty train her the older she got the more she can understand. I think its actually harder. Good Luck!

well my oldest had that problem he was constantly wetting the bed and having accidents during the day as well so we took him to the doctor and we found out he has a renal reflex so he is on antibiotics for that and it works great for him he isnt having anymore accident.. I hope it gets better for you
