    When DS1 was 3 he was toilet trained during the day. Then for ages wore a nappy at night, till one night I was just like F it. Took his nappy off at night and he was fine. To begin with I took him to the toilet before I went to bed, but found that it just made him worse lol So I stopped taking him and he would jsut want himsel up if he needed to go. He hasnt wet his bed since. Unless he was sick etc. But yeah, much easier than I thought lol

    My dd1 is almost 5 and has been completely TT during the day since she was almost 3. She still wears Dry Nights at night though. Most nights she is dry by morning but she is such a heavy sleeper she doesn't wake up when she needs to go during the night. I'm not worried- just like day time she will do it when she is ready. My sister was 12 before she was able to stop wearing them so plenty of time.

    Sorry to crash as I don't have a 4 year old, however I agree with a PP, when I toilet trained DS, we just went cold turkey on the nappies day & night-I literally threw every single one in the bin so I wouldn't be tempted & that was it. However I must admit, DS has amazing bladder control.. Not sure if that makes a difference.

    My just turned 7 year is only just dry at night. We went to see a specialist about it and he told us it is nothing to worry about. As long as there are no accidents in the day a bladder issue can be ruled out. He basically said kids that don't wake in the night to go to the toilet are receiving a very soft / quiet signal from brain to bladder. Where as people that wake up receive a loud signal. We were told in almost all cases it is hereditary. On his advice we rented a special mat, an alarm goes of as soon as it gets wet and the child wakes up hopefully mid flow and goes finish on the toilet. This helps the child's signal to get louder. It is supposed to take 8 weeks. It worked for my son after 2 weeks and is now on night 18 dry! He is a very heavy sleeper but now wakes to go to the toilet. I just thought I would share that. Basically no amount of training is going to help a child be dry at night as its all down to their signal. My daughter just became dry at night on her own when she was about three. Just to add the doctor told me waking the child at night to go to the toilet and restricting fluid does not help. It's just a case of waiting for the signal to switch on / get louder. He recommends the alarm treatment from age 6/7.
