    It can be hormonal - some children just don't have the capacity to hold their urine for so long at a time & boys often take longer to TT at night-time.

    Most parents wake their children during the night to take them to the toilet, say when they go to bed at 10 and then again during the night.

    I am way too lazy to do this so will just wait til DS can hold it all night.

    I don't believe it takes boys longer. I just think it is different for every child.

    Also I don't wake DS to go to the toilet during the night. He goes before bed and if he needs to go during which is very very rare then he wakes up and calls me if he needs help.

    I noticed when DS was about 18 months that I could tell when he needed to poo. I bought him a potty and tried him on it a few times.

    A month ago I launched into it fulltime. Undies all day, and lots of accidents. After about 4-5 days he "got it". He's been toilet-trained and dry for the last 3 weeks (daytime only, not sleeps). He just turned 2 this week and we were all very proud that he wore his special undies and stayed dry during his party.

    Oh gosh. I've never been non lazy enough to get up in the night. We have just been lucky, except with put eldest.

    Just let them watch me go and asked them when they showed interest if they wanted to try it.

    Ds is nearly 4 and has been day trained since 2 but is totally not interested in night traing. Im not too worried but with 2 others in nappies it would be nice to ditch his nappies altogether!Im another who is far too lazy to wake up! I value what precious sleep I have too much lol

    Offered it a lot once she showed awareness and then one day she decided it was time. No accidents and no training.

    I was too lazy for three day training etc.
