Disturbing Deep Sleep

Fatima - posted on 01/24/2014 ( 2 moms have responded )




Good Evening Moms!

My 5 years old wets the bed on and off. He goes to bed around 8:30 pm, and i wake him up at 10:30 pm, and again at 30 minutes past midnight to use the toilet. I heard that it will mess up his deep sleep, and it iis better if i do not wake him up. Another question, i heard that it is better if i stop his fluid intake at 6:00 pm. It is another 2 hours and half before he goes to bed. I wonder if is wrong to do that, and let him thirsty.

Thank you wonderful mothers.

Yes, it is better to not disturb REM sleep patterns, as it can cause problems.

And, yes, stopping fluids two hours before bed is reasonable.
