So, what is going on? Is this a health issue? Is it indicitive of something else going on w/thier bodies? I'd really appreciate any feedback. Thanks
*ETA: They also urinate a lot. My little guy soaks his diapers like nobody's business. If anything, I'd say it was abnormal how much he pees. So, I can't see how it could be inadequate fluids. DD urinates frequently throughout the day as well and when she does wear a diaper at night she soaks it very, very heavily. Older ds has always urinated a lot as well - frequently and large amounts of urine.
I would just try to increase their water during the day and see if that helps.

Pardon me while I
We have 8 kids, but we have one child who is 7 and is still having troubles getting through the night dry. As with the OP, his urine has a very strong pungent smell. So bad that I had my wife take him in to get looked at for possible liver/kidney problems, they ran tests and said he was normal. He is the only one with this smelly pee, they all eat the same thing, get enough fluids and I am at a loss as to why his stinks soooo bad. I am thinking there HAS to be something messed up and it is effecting his ability to sleep the night without peeing. We switched to large washable diapers because he pees every single night. So to cut costs on buying diapers my wife made some.
Also as the OP stated, my child pees like a race horse....I never thought a kid could pee soooo much at one time!
