    Does she drink much during the day? A friend of mine has taken her child to a continence nurse who has him drinking bigger drinks during the day and trying to build up bladder capacity aiming to do a *super wee* with the end goal that they have the capacity to last the night.

    I wouldn't worry. DD does a massive morning wee most mornings - irrespective of going just before bed - that she just doesn't wake for. I'd much rather she have a nappy on for it than for all of us to wake and have to clean up etc.

    I'd rather her be hydrated at this stage than sans nappy.

    I wet till 12. We tried the wetting alarm, medication, no liquids before bed, etc. nothing worked. Turned out it was caused by back problems (scoliosis). After seeing a chiro for a few months it stopped. I personally wouldn't recommend the wetting alarm. Not only did it not work, but it caused me a lifetime of sleeping issues. It caused me so much anxiety I had trouble falling asleep, and also became a ridiculously light sleeper. Since using it at 7yo I've been an insomniac and can't sleep with any light or noise...even a car driving past at night wakes me up! Before using it I was a very good sleeper. Just my personal experience though!

    My 5 year old DD is still wearing pull ups at night and seems to be no where near night training either. She's such a heavy sleeper she just doesn't wake up to go during the night. Even if I take her to the toilet before I go to bed she'll still wet by morning, and rewards don't seem to work. I find that people have started to make comments that she should be night trained and make out like it's a reflection of my parenting but I'm glad to hear it's common and can be normal. I think she just has to grow out of it.

    Inertia my DD is the same. She's five and a half and we've tried a few times now to put her in pants at night. I wake her for a wee before I go to bed, then in the night when DS usually wakes and my DP wakes her at 5 when he gets up for work and she was still wetting the bed in between. She was basically so tired she had no idea she was weeing. So we've left it again and I may try in the Xmas school hols again. I've brought the subject up with some non judgemental mums at school and found most of their kids are the same.

    It's nice to know we are not alone! Last night she had a dry pull up, let's see what tomorrow brings us!
