    Default dry nights...

    When do kids generally start having dry nights?, as in, not needing nappies at nite, or not wetting the bed?

    My DD was about 30 months, it was about 3 months after she started having dry days

    Every child is different, so anywhere from 18 months to 12 years is all within normal range, however most are out of nappies (may still wet the bed) by the age of 8.

    I agree all kids are different. My DD started toilet training a couple of months before she was 3. I was lucky, it took her a few days then it all just clicked and from then on she was trained during the day (an accident every now and then when she was too busy playing for a little while) and dry overnight, however I kept her in pullups overnight for ages just incase as I didn't want to change the sheets in the middle of the night! She has wet the bed/pullups twice since starting toilet training a year and a half ago. stopped using pullups after about a month I'd say as I was getting too expensive!

    My daughter is 3 and been toilet trained for nearly a year, but is nowhere near ready for night time toilet training, and neither am I. My son has just started sleeping through, so I am enjoying a full night of sleep for a while before I even consider training her

    DS toilet trained when he had just turned three. He became dry at night 2 months before he turned 5. I personally don't believe in night training. It happens when they are ready. For DS it literally happened overnight and he's never looked back.

    As others have said they are all different and each child takes their own time not just because they are being trained but because it has to do with brain development. When their brain has developed sufficiently a switch is flipped and it is recognised the child will become night dry.

    Mine have been at varied ages & different to their peers.

    Yeah that's right, it's a physical thing in their body, not something they have control over. My dd was out of nappies day and night before her 2nd birthday, but then a condition affecting bowels/bladder/kidneys meant loss of control day and night at about 6, and at 8 she has control back through the day but not at night yet.

    Depends really. Ds was dry day and night at 28months and hasn't worn a nappy since. I used the three day potty training method. Think that helped with getting his mind in sync with his body.

    My ds was dry during the day predictably at age 3.5, but he turned 5 a couple of weeks ago and isn't dry at night. We tried for 10 nights in a row and only had 3 dry nights. He was just sleeping too deeply and was waking up soaking wet & distressed, so he's back in dry nites pj pants (doesn't fit pull ups anymore) for now. There's no point in training him, the only thing that would help is taking him to the toilet overnight, but we couldn't even get that to work - he fought us despite not being really awake! Oh well. We'll try again in a few months.
