    Default Night toilet training

    Ds is 4.5 yrs old. I'm not quite sure 'how' to night train. He wears a nappy to bed and last year he was doing morning wees in the toilet and sometimes asking in the night , so I thought it would just happen from there. However he no longer wees in the night and now does his morning wee in his nappy.
    Please help.

    I would ditch the nappies, remove them from the house they are no longer an option. Buy some dry nights bed sheets from the supermarket and put them on top of the mattress protector but under the fitted sheet.
    Start a rewards chart. For every dry night he gets a star, after x number of stars he choses a small reward.
    You may need to set an alarm an hour before he usually wakes to take him to the toilet for the first week or so - morning wee usually happens when they are stirring/waking from deep sleep so this will avoid it.
    Persistence is key. Limit fluids in the evening and make sure he does a big wee immediately before bed. Some people like to put them on the toilet before they go to bed later on, but that never worked for us, it just woke her up.
    Best of luck I hope it resolves quickly for you.

    Ditto this. Wake up before he wakes and take him to the loo as soon as he shows signs of waking. Our boy is much younger, and we're not toilet training in the conventional way, but I do take him for his morning pee as soon as he is up - his bed is next to ours so we wake up at the same time. And most (but not all!) mornings the pee goes in the potty instead of the nappy.

    Are those bed sheets in the baby section, what are they called?

    Also we cosleep most nights, so I'll have to put them on our bed then (we have a king, so a pain to change !)

    We used brolly sheets (ordered from their website). Best thing ever and more effective than the supermarket one we got.

    I would ditch the nappy too. Try taking him to the toilet when you go to bed (not sure of this would work for a 4 year old, we did it when ours were 2 1/2 to 3 and it didn't wake them up) and then as soon as he wakes in the morning.

    Encourage him to drink more in the mornings and early afternoon and less late afternoon/evenings.

    Conni bed pads are available in different sizes, might be easier than having to change a king size bed.

    You'll probably find he gets it quite easily.

    Goodluck.
