Never had an issue with bed wetting before but recently my 7yo daughter has started dreaming of peeing and physically doing it in her sleep.

Definetly no physiological reasons, she's very happy, nothing different happening in our lives. So it's not that.

Anyone else's child suddenly started doing it or any advice on anything I should do? Maybe a short phase?

The good thing is it hasn't phased her, she's very laid back.

First thing is to check for worms, this can cause wetting.

Assuming this is all fine then make an appointment with the doctor for a urine test.

These are the first steps. You should get a matress protector sheet in the meantime, if it continues asked to be refered to a continence nurse.

I second booking an appointment with your GP as it could be a sign of a UTI so a good idea to have her checked out. But if there's no obvious cause hopefully it is just a phase - dreaming of peeing and waking up to find it's really happened is fairly common.
