Hi, Too frequent urination in your kid could be a sign of infection which might have made urination painful/burning sensation to him which will lead him to incomplete urination every time he attempts to urinate. You should take him to a pediatric surgeon for examination to rule out urethritis or phimosis and also get a renal function test done to check complete healthiness of kidneys. Hope this helps.

Hello, I have a 5 year old and she too has the same habit. However it doesn't hurt her at all. When she was 3 and 2 she did get UTI but non since. I also took her to get an ultrasound thing and everything is ok. But she continues to go pee soo often. Can it just be a habit???
