I've urinated a little during sleep. 4 days already, Ever since my older sister started staying in my bed with me. I don't have any dreams?

Urinary symptoms: First, make sure you don't have a urinary tract infection by seeing your doctor.
Having another person in bed with you is difficult; you may not want to get up to urinate and wake your sister so your bladder overflows and causes the leakage at night.
It sounds as though there may possibly be some complicated family dynamics. Talking to a doctor about these issues may be very helpful. ...Read more

My 5weeks old son is making weird noises before and during sleep. It sounds like crackles or a car engine that would not start. Should we be worried?

Noisy breathing: How long has this been going on? If u noted the problem soon after birth, he may have laryngomalacia. Its a condition where the laryngeal portion of airway is floppy&falls in during breathing. If ur son is otherwise ok & does not turn blue or have difficulty breathing, he should outgrow it. With time, the cartilage will have more calcium in it&the floppiness will disappear. See ur pediatrician. ...Read more

They learn so much during the day, they tend to process it when they sleep. Grinding should disappear as permanent teeth start to erupt. By the way, 1st orthodontic cm-up age 7. ...Read more

3 weeks old, sweats a lot during sleep only, wears only a diaper at home, kicks light blanket off since week 1, only sleeps with receiving blanket.

Hi I have a four year old son he breathes with his mouth open at night during sleep and snores a lot some nights?

Time for an eval: The snoring is likely to get worse with time as the tonsils tend to grow faster than the kid at that age. If he hasn't already he can develop a sleep disturbance, sleep apnea, with prolonged spacing between breaths (>20sec) that are a problem. If you can record his snoring & take it to your pcp they will likely send you to an ENT or for a sleep study. A t&a is often curative. ...Read more

If you can record a video of what you are seeing take the kid in for an evaluation. If the kid doesn't do it during the visit at least your video can show what happens. ...Read more
