    heavy sleeper and night time urinating
    Anon_238949 posted:
    needing suggestions. my 6yo boy is a very heavy sleeper we have never been sucsessful with night time potty trainging. we have tried everthing from no liquids after dinner to meds from the pediatrition. nothing works.

    he fell asleep on the couch the other night after our evening movie, told him to go to the bathroom before bed. he sat there and stared into space when he did finally move he almost urinated in the bath tub. and a few nights later almost went in the fridge.

    possible sleep walking. we have added more sleep also more nap times. nothing works.

    anyone have any thing similar or maybe know what is going on.

    might help: his aunt also had issues with night time urinating till almost 16yo.

    I don't have any solutions (sorry), and I'm sure this is very difficult.

    I would post this on the Parenting Forum

    There is Dr. Roy Benaroch on there who is a general pediatrician, and often answers parents questions.

    Take care,
