Deep Sleep and Bedwetting Many parents believe that their child’s deep sleep is causing bedwetting since the child can’t seem to wake up to go.  Without a doubt, most bedwetters are difficult to wake up from sleep.  In fact, it isn’t unusual for bedwetters not to wake up to a loud device called a ‘bedwetting alarm’.  And often the whole family other than the bedwetter will wake up to this alarm!  However, not all deep sleepers wet the bed.  Many bedwetters are difficult to wake up!
