My son, who is 10 - does sleep walk, but nowhere near as often as he use to. Luckily he never went outside or anything like that. I found answers from our nutritionist of all people. Depending on diet, the brain will stay very active during its sleep patterns... feed foods, in the evenings, that contain tryptophan. Peanut Butter, Bananas - etc - We incorporate these foods in the evenings, and have had great success, don't know if it works for everyone, but it did for my son. The less processed sugar before bed time the better... Good Luck!

My 4 year old walks and talks in his sleep. In fact last night he came into my room crying that he wanted his mommy when i tried to have him climb in my bed i noticed he was wet and he was still saying he wanted his mommy. I didn't realize he was not awake until i asked my husband what was wrong with him. My husband informed me that he has seen our son sleep walk before. I wanted to cry because e kept saying he wanted mommy and i was right there. I let him climb into bed with me anyway and he woke up a couple minutes later saying he wanted to go to bed. I looked up some information on kids who sleep walk and its says that sleepwalking can occur when a child has a full bladder (witch sounds like your case) or has wet the bed (witch is what happened in my case) Perhaps we need to make sure our children use the bathroom before bedtime.
