    Default Is she ready to be night toilet trained?

    Im a bit confused as to whether dd (2 years 7 months) is ready to have no nappy at night. She still wakes quite wet in the morning but lately has been pulling her nappy off when we put her to bed and changes herself into knickers or wees in her nappy and takes it off and comes out and hands it to us and says that she has done a wee.

    I have been just putting another nappy on her and putting her back to bed.

    Ive been told that they usually just start waking dry and thats how u know they are ready.

    My girls never woke dry until one night I ran out of nappy pants and put them in undies instead.
    They've had 2 accidents since, worth a shot.
    I'd try putting a mattress protector or shower curtain down JIC.

    I just dont think i could cope with wet sheets and night waking right now but with all the shennanigans trying to get her to sleep atm i thought it might b worth a try

    They had not long turned 3.
    Before they were ready to be TT I used to duct tape their nappies on at night time lol.

    Are you using normal nappies or pull ups? I used pull ups with DS & told him they were special undies, I didn't night train him until he woke up dry every night for at least 2 weeks. Have you tried a 'dream wee'? Wake her & take her to the toilet before you go to bed. Good Luck

    The thing with night time is that it's completely physiological, you can't train them as such. You can encourage and remind and do all that but it's really just up to their body and brain to make the connection. Pull ups work here for night time. We called them night undies so DS doesn't feel like he's being demoted :-)

    Yep, my boys just used to wet their nappies, and one day I started to notice that the nappies were dry when they awoke, they say 7 or 10 consecutive dry nappies, and then just stop puttting nappies on.
    FTR both my older boys were older than 5 when they were fully night trained, but they say boys are often later than girls.

    Shes in normal nappies. Thing is im scared to wake her as she has been so hard to get to bed and to sleep to begin with lately. We have just moved house and shes still quite unsettled ( might start a thread about that actually) so might try the pull ups in a week or two

    Thanks for the tips
