When my son is supposed to be sleeping, or trying to go to sleep, he suddenly needs to go to the bathroom every 10 minutes. I know there is nothing wrong with his bladder. He is absolutely fine throughout the day and never complains of pain. I think he's just found something that works on letting him get out of bed for a few minutes and he's going with it. What can I do to stop this?

I would feel horrible about telling him "no, you can't go to the bathroom". I mean, that's one of the basic human needs that have to be met. He does go each time although it's only a squirt. Our bedtime routine includes him going potty. Then a few minutes after I leave the room he's up needing to go again. It usually averages needing to go 3 or 4 times within an hour and a half. On the third time last night he was telling my dh "I don't want to wet the bed, I can't hold it.". I told dh "he's got us on this one, I don't know what to do." He said to check with the mommy board.

Can you put him on a Pull Up at night?

Disregard that if you want him night trained.
