I wetted bed heavily as a child until 9yrs and it gradually decreased until 13yrs. Later in my early to mid 20, it reoccured about two to three times when I started working night shift. I was so sleep deprived that one night when I had the night off, I went into a very deep sleep. It was the best sleep ever but when I woke up, my bed was wet. I started laughing because I just cracked the mastery of bed wetting, I thought to myself. 'Deep sleeping stops the brain from getting the signal that we have to pee'. I also have two kids. A 9yr old that wets the bed and a 5yr old that doesn't. One night when they were sleeping in a hotel room I applied Vaseline on their dry lips. The five yr old moved her head in response to the touching she felt, but the 9yr old laid like a dead body.she didn't even realize she was being touched. This just corroborated my hypothesis that Deep sleeping is a major cause of bed wetting. Since then I bought a very loud alarm clock for my 9yr old and she sets it for 2hrs post bed time. Cos that's when she usually wets the bed. She's been waking up dry more often.
