    Default Should i wake my 3 year old?

    ...to go wee in the night?

    She has been TT during the day for almost a year now.

    Have just started night training this week and am waking her at 11pm before we go to bed as well as 5am when dh leaves for work problem is she isnt happy about it and isnt going back to sleep after the morning wake up and she usually sleep till around 7:30-8.

    So just wanting some advice as to whether its best to leave her and get her used to the feeling she needs to go in the night and take herself or to continue waking her??

    Thanks

    We didn't wake DS up, but took him to the toilet just before bed at 7.30. He hasn't had any accidents, and has only got up to go to the toilet once in the early hours of the morning.

    We never woke DD and she never got up to wee during the night that I'm aware of. I make her go in the morn - not because she is going to wet herself but because I cant believe she could hold it in for 14hours! I'm just jealous of her pelvic floors

    4yo DD has wet the bed only twice since night trained at 2.5.
    I think once it clicks they know when they need to go.

    No. If you wake her and take her her bladder capacity will not increase and you will have to keep taking her to the toilet at night.

    This is true for myself actually! I wee'd every time I got up to DS - the "just in case" wee. He sleeps through but I still wake to wee. Need to retrain myself!!

    I also think bed wetting is a mental thing. If you are the type who struggles to wake, or you dream a lot it might mean you wet the bed.
    One of my twins is great, has hardly ever wet the bed and had been night trained for over 2 years. Sometimes I hear him get up at night to use the toilet.
    His brother however is a frequent wetter- and his problem is that he dreams he is on the toilet but is actually still in his bed.
    These boys have the exact same DNA, have had the exact same upbringing etc... It's just one is easier to wake and is more aware of what is happening when he is asleep.

    I never did...I left my boys in pulls up until they were ready not to wear them. They made the choice at the same time at nearly 4 and 5... It was much less stressful this way. They never intentionlally used the pull up and would get up and change their pull up if they did have an accident. By the time they were ready they had mostly dry nights anyway. I'll do the same with ds3...I think something needs to switch before they can be dry through the night, i dont think its necessarilly a training thing (hence why some kids still wet til much older)

    I agree that night times aren't really about training, just readiness. I never woke DD - well I tried the whole drag her to the toilet when I go to bed thing which she'd never wake for and just sob and never actually wee.

    I did early toilet learning with her and she was out of nappies during the day at around 21 months. Nights she wasn't ready for until about 3.5. Bedwetting runs in my family so I really didn't want to push her as I'd seen how hard it had been for both my siblings and my neice being bedwetters. She wanted to try quite a few times before then so I would double or triple sheet the bed but after a few weeks she'd ask to go back in nappies. She'd generally be dry all night but then wet the bed around 6am (waking at 7). Once she trained she then started waking earlier - obviously her body could only hold on that long. Then after a few months her wake time got later again as her body could hold longer.

    I also found she could only drink water after about 4-5pm. Milk was particularly bad for making her wet the bed.
