    Default Did your child go dry at night on their own?

    Ive heard that when toddlers are ready to be nappy free at night they will start waking dry often, is this your experience?

    DD is fully day trained but wear a nappy at night. Shes just turned 3 and still wakes up with a quite full nappy so not sure if i should wait or go cold turkey, take it off her and let her wet the bed a few times and hope she will catch on.

    Any tips? Ta

    My DD2 started waking up dry day every day so we ditched the night nappies. It's been a few months and she hasn't had an accident yet.
    On the other hand, DD1 is 5 and still wets pretty much every night. She is a really heavy sleeper, although she has started to wake at night occasionally and take herself to the toilet.
    Im a firm believer that night training happens whenever the child is ready.

    My ds, then aged 2.5 years, said to me one day that he didn't want to wear nappies (during the day). He toilet trained himself. Then 2-3 days later he refused to put one on at night and wanted to just wear his undies to bed. My ex said no but I thought i'd let him try. He slept right through and apart from 2 times when he was sick, he never wet the bed. I think i'd wait until your child asks. I don't think they consciously go 'oh well, i'm wearing a nappy, i'll just wee in it' when they sleep- I think they're more likely to develop a sense of holding on. (If that makes sense).

    My DS1 was daytime toilet trained at 2, a couple of months before his 4th birthday we forgot to put a nappy on him for bed and he woke up dry. He's never looked back since then, I can count the number of times he's wet the bed on one hand.

    DS2 however has just daytime toilet trained recently at 3 and he is really far off dry nights I think.

    I'm dealing with this now for almost 4y DS. He toilet trained himself at 2- literally on his 2nd birthday - and his onight nappies have been soaking through this whole time! I recently thought we'll see how he goes and he's wetting 2 times a night! With a dry night out of every 5. I think the nappies are going back on. But if see no end in sight.

    I did this last night. DS has recently turned 3 and has been day toilet trained consistently for a couple of months but had a wet nappy every night. Last week I ordered the brolly sheets for his bed and yesterday they arrived. We talked about not wearing a nappy to bed and went potty before sleep and he woke up dry.

    DS is almost 3. He's been out of nappies during the day since he was about 22 months and at night for about 6 months. He's wet the bed 2 or 3 times when he's been sick, but otherwise he's been fine. We do take him for a wee around 10pm though - just put him on and he wakes just enough to go an is back to sleep straight away.

    Try not to worry, just pop him back in nappies at night, He will get there and it's better if he does it on his own with minimal stress. Boys especially can take longer and its nothing to worry about, I was so stressed with DS2 not daytime toilet training until after he turned 3 but they really do just all do it in their own time

    I just flowed in from the day training. When my kids were mostly dry during the day I didn't use nappies at night. My theory was it might regress them during the day.

    We did the toilet before bed routine and my kids only ever night wet a handful of times, that was it.

    When my DD1 was TT I shared custody with her dad, and when she went there for visits he used to put her in a nappy at night, where as I had her in undies.In my situation I believe it regressed DD1's night TTing. She took a little longer than others her age to night train.

    On the other hand my DH was still wetting the bed at 10 years old

    My DD was day trained at 2ish and night about 6 months later herself. My sis has twins...girl was dry day and night at 2.5. Boy was dry day by 3 but not till 7 at night. No matter how much bribery/charts/waking him up during the night to wee etc. apparently his dad wet the bed till about 9.
    I'd say its def up to the child. I'd personally prefer a nappy a night than having to wake up and change sheets overnight
