Hallucinations are never normal. You should be immediately evaluated by a neurologist and a psychiatrist.

Is there a new child in the family or changes that would cause him to regress? Has it ever happened during the day? Has his behavior changed? I recommend taking him to the pediatrician for an evaluation as there are a number of possible causes. If everything is fine, there are different methods to help him not wet the bed, including monitoring liquids in PM and waking him up on schedule every night to take him to the bathroom.

I would need to know more about your child's milestones. When did she roll over, stay in sitting position without assistance? There is a big range for walking however the previous questions will help me find potential delays in development or perhaps low muscle tone. Does she give steps with hands held? Talk to your pediatrician for an evaluation of her milestones. If there are any concerns the most important thing is to stay on top of the situation and intervene early. Hope this helps.
