My 5 year old has wet her bed twice in the past week. She has also had a few accidents at school. I did take her to the dr for it previously, but there was nothing wrong (not saying you shouldn't get it checked out).
I assume she is in school? Check there isn't bullying going on or any issues with kids. My little girl has a lot of trouble with one child in her class, although it is a widespread problem that the entire class struggles with. I had to bring it to the teacher's attention last year, and had to make a call to this year's teacher and principal already this year as well.
My childminder brought it to my attention this morning that she has been complaining of nightmares. She had mentioned it to me in passing before, but I thought nothing of it. Apparently she has been struggling very badly the last while with these nightmares. I'm thinking this is what is leading to her latest trouble with wetting the bed.
She does have some issues at school with other kids. During the first three weeks of school she got punched in the face by a classmate in the lunch line. Just a few weeks ago she got kicked on the eye on an accident and she got a black eye. Oth instances I have raised cane with the school, and when I talk to her about it it doesn't seem to bother her. I made her a doc appt Thursday, so hopefully we can start to get some answers. Posted via Mobile Device
Eta she did have a nightmare the night she wet the bed, but that's the only nighttime accident she has had.
I've been getting 2-3 UTIs a year like clockwork for two years now. Let me tell you, it always hurts like a mother (the one from April this year developed into a kidney infection...lovely). Get her checked anyway even if it doesn't hurt. Though I'll let you in on a little secret.
I WAS THE EXACT SAME WAY. I was potty trained since 3, but had accidents all the time anyway. At this age (now) I have no idea why it was happening, but it really POd my mom. She tried everything you tried, to no avail. I had no infections or medical issues.
The one thing that ended up working was my mom got fed up and just put about 1-2 inches of cold water in a large pot and sat me in it, telling me if I wanted to sit in cold, wet underwear I could do it right there and just stay there. Can't say I haven't had an accident since (at 22, I'm not ashamed to admit I have the occasional nighttime accident and due to UTIs some incontinence).
Still tears my mom up though...cause my response to that was looking up at her and asking her if she was going to cook me (maybe the pot wasn't a great idea).
