    Default Night toilet training help

    Ds just turned 5. He has a wee before bed and will wake once in the night to wee (sometimes none). But he's still wet when he wakes up!! He either wets the bed if I try no nappies or wets the pull up.
    He's never, ever woken up dry.

    Ive heard it when 'their' physically ready, but I just can't see that happening.

    I feel like I'm doing something wrong.

    It's normal for children to wet at night time until they are 7. I would pop him in pull ups and try to get him to drink lots in the mornings in the hope that he doesn't drink as much in the afternoon.

    Have a look at the bed wetting section on www.Fedup.com.au

    It could actually be particular foods in his diet causing this and easily fixed

    I would pop off to Dr and get his urine checked out. It sounds like maybe he isn't concentrating his urine.

    Pp poster is right about it being common for kids still wet until they are 7. Some kids wet until their teens

    Sorry, but I have no idea what you mean by this?

    During the day he has no accidents at all and always makes it to the toilet (even if busting).

    Have you tried monitoring and/or restricting his fluid intake in the evening? We try to have at least an hour fluid free before his last pee before bed and I've read of someone restricting fluids three hours before bed, but I think that's a bit extreme.

    Edited to add that I find this author's advice useful:

    Ive read not to restrict fluids because they need to learn to hold etc

    At 5 it can be perfectly normal. Its not something you can always reach they have to be developmentally ready and sometimes its a bit later for some.

    To a point, yes, they need to learn to hold, but I know that, if I as an adult have a mug of tea right before bed, I'm going to be up in the middle of the night going to the loo. Might it be worth trying to ban liquids half an hour or an hour before bed and just see if it has any effect?
