Help! I have a 5 year old daughter who wakes up EVERY NIGHT in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom (sometimes twice). Problem is she can't seem to do it alone and wakes me up to tuck her back in bed and shut the light. I've tried putting her nightstand lamp right next to her bed so after she puts her covers back on she just has to reach over and shut the light. She won't do it! I would just let her cry it out until she did it but I have a 2 year old in the next room that she'll probably wake up. Any suggestions? Is the frequent urination normal? I've spoken to her pediatrician and he doesn't seem to think there is anything medically wrong with her. Signed SLEEP DEPRIVED!
