My 9yo dd wet the bed last night. Why?

She's been potty-trained since 18 months and hasn't even had an overnight accident since she was probably 2.5yo. She said she drank a whole bottle of water before bed last night and just didn't wake up to go. But, still. She always has a bottle of water next to her bed and this hasn't ever happened. She went to bed on time and everything. There's no abnormal activity or stress going on. Do you think something's wrong, or this was just some weird incident?

  • If she's not sick, not unduly stressed, and it happens once every seven years, it's just a freak accident that could happen to anyone.

  • She was probably in a deep sleep and just didn't wake up to the sensation that she had to go. Either that or she dreamed she was swimming or already in the bathroom (I've had all of these things happen to me.) If she keeps it up maybe have her checked for a UTI

  • She could have an infection, a bladder or UTI infection. Take her to the doc and have her tested. Also, it could have just been that she was dreaming or she didn't wake up when she had to go. You are freaking out and she hasn't had an accident in 7 years, let it go. It's really not a big deal.

    I did the exact same thing at that age....But I swore I was sitting on the toilet, obviously I wasn't but it was so real...... LOL.

  • I wouldn't worry about it unless it starts to be a pattern.
