A week of night wetting

DD is 3y3m and was TTd at about 2y3m.

At about 2.5 she didn't want to wear nappies at night anymore so I got a few broly sheets and went with.  We have some accidents but on the whole she is dry.  When she has an accident we just say acidents happen, change her and back to bed.  She always remembers the next morning and tells me accidents happen.

We used to put her to the toilet when we went to bed at about 11pm but then I read on here that's not a good thing, we stopped and she still slept through till about 6:30am and then came and got me for the loo.  On the odd occasion she did need to go in the night she'd come in and get me to take her.

I notice her accidents tend to occur when she hasn't had a day sleep so is really tired and sleeps very deeply overnight.

A while ago she had about a week of accidents and they were all little wees and then it went away.  My mum told me I used to be the same (I remember being a bed wetter in primary school) and the doctor told her I got a lot of kidney infections and that led to the accidents.

I've googled kidney infection and I suspect that my dr as a child really meant UTI and I would say DD shows some symptoms of a UTI like frequent need to urinate small amounts and she has cold type symptoms and is running a very slight temperature.

So wise EB does a UTI OR kidney infection really lead to more bed wetting, is it just a stage to ride through (last night she wet twice - so glad I changed my mind about not putting the second brolly sheet on after the first wet bed)?

Worms can cause a child to wet the bed. Maybe worm her just to be on the safe side.

And get her checked for a UTI.

But I reckon the lack of day sleep is also a factor. Take her to the toilet before bed and limit her drinks.

I would also take her to the toilet in the middle of the night as an interim measure until she readjust to the new sleep routine.

Thanks BB I am thinking definitely a trip to the doctor to check on the UTI.  Never thought of worms so I will try that.

Was going to take her to the toilet when I went to bed last night but she beat me and wet the bed.

Her bedtime routine is teeth, toilet, book and bed.

At the end of the day I really think it is the day sleep, she just needs one every couple of days and she is fine!

I have memories of wetting the bed when I was a kid. It always happened when I'd had a big day and was so exhausted I couldn't rouse myself to get up and go to the toilet.

So her transition from day sleeps would be conistent with that.
