Warm water and peeing yourself

Ok, so if you stick someone's hand into warm water while they're asleep  they soil themselves !  How the hell does that work ?

Yes, I remember that too. I always thought it was an old wives tale. I'd love to know whether it's true or not.

I've heard that too....as a firm believer in empirical study, tonight , when wifey is alseep....hang on !!....that's my bed too !!.....sorry, won't be performing that experiment !!.....but I want to know the answer too

Could it be a 'I'm back in the womb  and I'll crap and pee to my hearts content' type thing happening here ?....hang on !! (again) Babies inside mummies, do they crap and pee or not ?

...anyway. lets hope a passing 'siesta dormancy hand in warm water bowl expert' passes and enlightens us

Men are the same as women.... just inside out !!

The amniotic fluid that surrounds the baby is partly urine made by the developing kidneys. The baby continuously swallows it, and then reproduces it. So no one can deny having drunk their own urine at some point.

Babies don't generally crap in their amniotic sac because they are not eating anything and hence there is nothing to pass through them.

However, late in development, and usually due to foetal distress during, for instance, a prolonged labour, they can sometimes poo in their uterine paddling pool and pass a thick substance called 'meconium' which is the developmental debris left over from the growth of the intestines. It tends to be thick and sticky and the downside of it being in the amniotic sac is that the baby can breathe it in, causing respiratory problems following delivery.

For this reason, babies showing signs of distress are often delivered by caesarian to minimise the risk.
