    Default Night toilet training, I feel like an !d!ot

    Ds is 4.5yrs and wears a pull up at night. He does wake up wet and sometimes goes to the toilet very early morning.
    Anyway I just thought night training happened on its own, that he would eventually just wake up dry and go toilet in the night if he needed. However I was reading some info today and it said that if your child is 4+ then your dealing with a bed wetter.
    So tonight I put the Conni bed pads on and undies. I have no idea what's going to happen tonight.

    I know it's annoying, but could you try and get up before him in the morning and put him straight on the toilet?
    I don't think it's a bad thing if he wets the bed (ok except the washing) as it will make him aware of it - he is so use to having a nappy on.

    I wouldn't worry about it yet. My DS is 4 and we are still very hit and miss with dry nights. We tend to have a run of wet nights if he's had big days and is very tired but is dry probably 70% of the time. I find if I wake him and take him to the toilet before I go to bed about 10 he wakes up dry.

    There was a stage a few months back where he would go in the night and always in the morning, but silly me didn't click that it was time and instead kept him in the pull ups, so now he hardly goes. He would rather wee In the nappy.
    Yeah I'll try that. Thanks.

    I was reading this and it suggests not waking them as they need to learn to wake on their own

    DS was wet every night until 4 years and 11 months when he suddenly stopped wetting. We've never had a wet bed since (he'll be 8 in July)

    DD will be 5 in May and is still wet every night. I'm just rolling with it. I have a friend who had kids still wetting at 8 and 9 and she tried everything. Specialists, the whole deal. In the end they grew out of it. With this in mind I don't really believe in night training. The specialist she saw said restricting drinks is not a good idea as it doesn't train the bladder to hold an appropriate amount overnight. Same goes for waking them to wee.

    My DS has just turned 7 last week and I think that FINALLY he is dry overnight. I was told that you don't need to intervene until they're at least 7, so I was prepared to go get professional help this year if need be. It really seemed like he would never do it on his own, given how old he is, but looks like he has done it!

    My son was out of night nappies by 3 (refused to wear them) and was still wetting until almost 9!

    Apparently it's not primary bedwetting until they're 8 and I can tell you from class sleepovers that plenty of kids still wet at 8 and even 9.

    I just got a waterproof bed pad and changed sheets for years. He eventually grew out of it.

    Totally normal at that age. Most eventually grow out of it.

    DS1 is 4 and a half and has the odd night here or there where he is dry in the morning if we take him for a wee in the night. Some mornings his pull-up is really full.

    I've heard it's a hormonal thing that can't be trained as such.

    I'd just keep doing what you're doing. It's no drama.

    Well this morning he woke up at 5am drenched and smelly.
    I didn't know it was a hormonal thing.
    Does that mean I should just put the nappies back on?
