Ummm, I would guess that he was smelling his fingers or hand and got some poop on his face - rather then eating it. Which would also explain why he said it has no taste.
Its kind of typical for kids with ADHD to have wetting problems - they just don't stop long enough to pee until its too late. But, I usually hear about this more during the day. Is he a really sound sleeper?
he is also on medication for his AD/HD
I asked him to let me smell his breath, it smelled of poo as well.
yes he is a very sound sleeper, it takes forever for him to get to sleep. once hes asleep - hes out. I was told by MANY ppl boys wet the bed longer then girls, but my main concern is the poo issue...
Hi there. Well, I do agree that urinating during the night is common with children with nervous system issues and actually the percentage of night time wetters in general is probably higher than you think. 12% of kids up until 9 years old still wet at night. Kids are in constant motion have the issue but probably more so it involves the signaling from the nervous system. It doesn't send a strong enough signal to wake the child to get up and go to the bathroom. Most actually have parents that had this same issue as kids and most outgrow it.
Regarding the poo. I'm tending to agree with Sandman. However, if your child has a history of impulsively eating 'odd' things, I'd look into Pica.
