After nearly a year of being lifted, 8yo ds1 has just started taking himself to the toilet at night.

Two nights ago he peed against the bathroom door.
Last night he peed in the laundry basket.
Just now he peed in the bookcase.

It is a male ritual... just practicing for those nights when he has too much to drink grin

I have a rather horrible memory of my flat mate's boyfriend peeing into our armchair - he was about 19 at the time hmm

sorry - no advice but your post made me laugh grin

Is he sleepwalking/sleeppeeing?

Only my brother used to do this when he was young. Mum found him peeing on a bedside lamp once, completely unaware.

Then when my grandfather died, he was obviously upset and it seemed to effect his sleep and at about 1am he appeared in my bedroom (next door to the bathroom) and proceeded to pee all over my bookcase before trying to get into my bed. He was about 22 at the time.

I was furious and upset, but then realised that he really had been completely unaware of what he was doing.

What is it about bookcases?

Last night I rushed upstairs as soon as I heard footsteps, and found ds1 opening and shutting the doors to his bookcase. I asked him what he was doing: "I'm looking for the toilet". Thank goodness he hadn't found it! Talking to me brought him to his senses a little, and he went to the actual toilet - and tried to have a wee without lifting the lid. And then 'washed' his hands in mid-air, miming turning the taps. Used the towel properly, though.

Didn't remember a thing this morning.

Do girls ever get confused this way?

Our walk in wardrobe door (not as grand as it sounds!) used to be next to the bedroom door and when dh was very drunk a couple times he would wake in the night and go into the wardrobe. Luckily I always woke up and shouted for him to go in the bathroom!
