My Son Is 7 And Still Wets The Bed
My son is 15 years old and is still wetting the bed almost every night. I have also found cups of urine under his bed or in the closet. Help please!
Bell and Alarm: Not uncommon for kids even as old as 15 to still wet the bed. It is a sleep problem where they are so deep in sleep they do not recognize the need to urinate. You can order underwear off the net with an alrm that goes off the second the underwear is wet. This will train him to awake and pee, but it takes 2 full weeks to learn this association. Have his urine screened for infection/diabetes. ...Read more

Is it normal for my 5 yr old to still be wetting her pants?She wets bed every night and occasionally wets during day.We make her potty ev 2 hrs
No: At this age control should be normal. Two suggestions--- 1. Enuresis (bed wetting) is due to exaggerated activity of the automatic nervous system. Commonest cause is poor diet, especially sugar. 2. By making her use the potty every 2 hours she may be trying unconsciously to give you a message that she objects to your efforts to control her. Put the two together and you may solve the problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My 6 yr old is sleep walking she gets out of bed and walks and talks during the night hours and it's happening almost every night.Should I be worried?
Not necessarily: Sleep walking/talking are often a product of long term sleep deficits.Inconsistent bed times or too much tech/TV just before bed can cause poor sleep.A 6 yo should get about 10 hrs of sleep/night. Stopping TV/tech at least an hour before going to bed helps them get into a bedtime pattern.As little as 30 min more sleep per night could end this pattern . ...Read more

Why would my very healthy 4yo sweat like crazy for about the first hr she falls asleep. She sleeps in her undies and hates covers. But cools off after? This has been goin on for two yrs
Unusual but okay: I have no fancy metabolic answer for you, but i can tell you just to write it in her baby book along with all of her other wonderful traits. Yes, night sweats indicate disease states or cancer, but this isn't the same thing as sweating the initial hour of sleep. Also you stated this has been going on for 24 months and that she is healthy. No worries. ...Read more
