So... DD1 is 4y8m old and has been totally pt'd for at least a year and a half, meaning dry both day and at night. We haven't used pullups in forever. Two nights ago she peed in bed in the middle of the night, not once but twice . Luckily we have extra waterproof sheets on under the regular ones, for both her and DS still (I think I'll leave them on forever, as stomach flu is bound to hit us again one of these days!) Last night she was afraid to go to bed and said she wanted a pullup so she wouldn't wet the bed. I didn't know what to say, but finally gently said that she didn't need one b/c she's a big girl now, and why don't we just go pee one more time before bed, and then try night-night without a pullup. She gave me such a sad little face but said ok, and was dry all night last night. Did I f' up? I don't want to act like it's a huge deal if she wets or wants a pullup, but I don't want to encourage her to wear them as a security blanket if she doesn't need them. Kids can be cruel and she is starting to ask about sleepovers with her bffs. (I'm not ready yet, but I know I wont' hold out too much past kinder probably, given how social she is). If she wets again, do I let her have pullups at night? Thoughts?? How to not let this affect her confidence? DH and I were really kind when it happened (first time only I got up and just changed her and the bed and put her back in, second time I got DH up since she had woken the baby up, and made him change the bed - we were both nice about it hugging her and just insisting that she go potty before going back to bed.) Anything I should do differently if it happens again? Thanks, oh wise ones, I would be lost without you! Hugs to everyone,
Kenny

hi Kenny

Hope you're well-
My niece did the same thing- a few nights in a row- she's the same age. She had a bladder infection...Don't know if that helps, but if it continues, it's something to look at.

My DS did. One of the things they warned about was that apnea can cause disrupted sleep which then changes brain activity and does something to bladder control.

That's all I can think of from my past experiences.........

Good luck : )

I have no advice to offer, as LO is only 6 mos old, but I just want to say that the tenderness with which you describe how you and DH supported your daughter is touching. She's a lucky little girl.

Even much older children and sometimes adults have accidents once in a while. Just tell her it was an accident and accidents happen. Did she by any chance drink fizzy drinks that day, they often cause children to pee in the bed. Dayna has also done it once or twice.

and that's been going on for two years at least, off and on, but we've been to the dr several times for it - and she has had urine tests that have come back normal. So I don't know what to think there? But that WOULD make sense. Thanks so much, I'll call her doctor yet again, just to be sure we've covered everything. Thank you!!

but they were not deemed large enough to warrant removal. She snores sometimes, but seems deeply asleep during the night. Do you know if this also affects bladder control at all when awake? Sorry if that's a dumb question, it's just that I think sometimes she lets a little urine out without needing to go potty badly, and I was wondering why. Shoot now I'm wondering if she really does have a bladder issue. Ugh, I hate this, feel like I'm totally failing her . @#(* Thanks for your response, I'm going to call the ped again, hope they are in tomorrow. Best,
Kenny

I know you can relate! I'm such a lucky woman. I still have to pinch myself practically daily - I can't believe I have these three little people to hang out with. They are little monsters LOL, but I love them with every fiber of my being, that's for sure. Best,

Tonight they tried sparkling water for the first time and were not impressed LOL. Thanks for your response,

bladder or urinary tract infection but it sounds like she has been tested and all is okay there. DD had one when she was really young...I think maybe like 10 mos old so I know it can occur in little girls (apparently more than boys...just like big girls I guess...lol!)If this is the only time this has happened I wouldn't worry too much...dd had a night time accident a few weeks ago and dh changed the sheets and the pjs and didn't make too much of it and it hasn't happened since. Sounds like you guys handled it really well! Hope you guys have a great start to the new school year!
