My daughter is urinating everytime she falls asleep. for about a month now. Seems to coincide with our second daughter being potty trained..which is odd. We don't give her any drinks past dinner and always goes potty before bed. Not sure what else to do.

I don't think that bedwetting is even a symptom of Celiac Disease, it's just that it was out of character for her to have accidents, so I wanted to explore all possibilities. What's nice, is that it can be ruled out with a simple blood screening.

Oh wow, thanks I didn't think of that. But no, her behavior hasn't really change too much. She has been fully trained for over a year too and all of a sudden she started this. Maybe I'll call the doc see what they say. Thanks

Has her personality/behavior changed at all during the day? My daughter started having accidents after being fully potty trained for a year. She was a picky eater and very moody alltogether. Her accidents started at the same time I gave birth to her little brother. I figured it was just emotional, but to be safe I had her tested for Celiac Disease- an autoimmune disorder that randomly screws up your body (its genetic and I had been diagnosed with it only 1 year before). Her results came back positive, and since changing her diet, she has had no accidents and has become a much happier child. I'm not saying that cuz your daughter has accidents it means she has a disease. I justed wanted to throw out there that there could be something medical to it. Hopefully it's something much simpler. Bad dreams perhaps?
