frequent wetting during daytime and nighttime

My son is 3yrs 8mths. i have stopped using a nightime diaper
+- 1 mth ago. since then we have only had about 1/2 dozen dry nights. i notice that on nights when i give him no fluids after 6 we have dry nights. this seems too early as he only falls asleep closer to 9. he is also wetting himself at school. the teacher has also tried to limit fluid intake. yesterday he had 2 accidents and she then took him to the loo every 10 - 15mins. each time he made a wee? is this a cold on the bladder or bladder infection? is there a difference? i am treating today with cranberry juice and dried cranberries. he also made a #2 accident at school 2 days ago? could there be some other problem?

It is possible that this is just a stage that your son is going through and is finding it difficult to control his bladder. The daytime wetting problems are a bit worrying and just may be due to a urinary system infection. It would be best to ask your doctor to test his urine for a possible infection.

forgot to mention that he has just had his second dose of polio drops and also deworm medicine. a slight fever on that night that was easliy treated with Ponado Syrup. could this have somethng to do with the problem referred to in ''frequent wetting during daytime and nighttime''?
