    Yeah... better to see a doctor. But for my case, i didn't see the doctor and the thing just went away with age. Used to sleepwalk until abt 11years old when it stopped on its own. Used to go outside to the sofa and "watch tv", walk around the house and stuff. Almost all the times i sleepwalk i wont make it back to bed, always seem to end up UNDER the bed somehow. How i knew was because my parents/brother will tell me in the morning wad i did the night before. Haha I wonder what i did on the times i woke up under my bed and nobody saw wad i did the night before... Haha

    just make sure keys are kept properly (ex. in high places) and doors and windows are locked properly.

    I also sleep walk when I was young. My mom has to carry me back to bed sometimes. Just dissappear when I grew up.

    I suggest you keep an eye on him first, it may just be that he wanted to go to the toilet but because he's 1/2 sleep 1/2 awake, lost his sense of direction and end up thinking that the washing machine area is the toilet. I think it happen to most kids in our high stress schooling env.

    I saw a documentary on sleep walking. There are people who can cook a full meal, eat it, and wash up when they are sleep walking. Then they become really fat. It's amazing. They can use the knife and cut stuff, all in their sleep.

    Do note how many times it has happened. If it's only 1~2 times during this period, chances are he's stressed about something (eg. sibling? ).

    If it lasts for beyond a month, then get professional help.

    My Sect Cmdr once told us that he had to deal with a few recruits over the years with this problem. He made the i/c put wet floor rugs on both side of their bunk and it worked. Apparently wet soggy feet wakes the person up.
