Hi,

Is there any pain or discomfort while passing urine? Any fever, nausea or abdominal pain? Urine infection usually causes symptoms day and night alike. But it will be fine if we can get a urine routine test done, as this is very simple. If no infection, try restricting the amount fluids after 6 pm. Avoid caffeinated and sugary items after 4 pm. This can help by reducing urine volume and bladder stimulation during night. Also, de-worm him once if not done in last 6 months.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Muhammed Aslam T. K., Pediatrician
