    Default Night time toilet training

    My little man is 3.5 y/o. He has been toilet trained during the day for about a year now. As he had been waking up with a dry nappy for a while, I decided to start putting him to bed in jocks to see how we go.

    I followed the advice of my parents to wake him up before I go to bed to do a wee. This works really well, if he actually wakes up.

    I like to have early nights whenever I can, so I usually wake him up around 9.30 -10 for his late wee. This seems to be when he is in a really deep sleep. I can usually get him up on his feet, and walking towards the loo, but often he will just stand up and wee in his PJs, or wee standing nowhere near the toilet! He is still asleep really, and he just wants to run back to his bed.

    I have found if I wake him up later, around 11.30 -12, he will wake up and wee properly, but I just don't like staying up that late.

    I have left him a couple of times and not woken him up at all, and he has been ok, but about 50% of the time when I do this he will wet the bed and wake up the whole house.

    Any help? Please!

    Does he do a wee before his bedtime?

    I find as long as my ds (3.5y) does a wee before bed he makes it thru the night.

    Every kid is different though. Sorry I'm not much help.

    The advice that I was given was not to wake them. You arent training them to fill their bladder completely. Buy some really good waterproof protectors (big w has some) and ride it out. I know with my own son it was pretty much a month of changing a lot of sheets - but after that it got better pretty quickly. Good luck!
