My DS didn't night train til he was almost 4 because he was still wetting his night nappy (fully day trained since before 3). I didn't push the issue I just waited until I noticed him becoming dry at night.
Once we ditched the night nappy I found taking him to the toilet just before I went to bed was helpful and even during the night if I was up (either going myself or feeding DS2). I only needed to do this for a few months. Of course he still had accidents but I just kept things low key (not to worry, accidents happen kind of comments) and got him cleaned up quickly.
My best friends were my 2 brolly sheets I bought online - fab for in the middle of the night! Just whip off the wet one and throw a clean one on. Easy!
DS1 is now 5.5 and no longer uses the brolly sheets and hasn't had an accident in months (touch wood!).
I'm glad I didn't push him and waited until he was ready as I feel it made the process easier.

It's hard on the whole family.
I have a 13 yr and 4 yr who struggle with being dry. We never shame them. They would stop it if they could. My 13 yr old has medicine for camps but he needs a few weeks on it before a camp. So sleepers are not possible. The med are too dangerous to be on full time.
He is the size of a full grown man eg he is taller than Dh and I. So that makes dealing with it emotionally hard too.
What is it you want to know?

DD is 6 and still wets the bed on a regular basis. She just doesn't wake up. I'm unable to take her to the bathroom in the night as I have a back problem and she is way too heavy for me to pull out of bed.
I was going insane getting up to change her and her sheets every night so we now use dry nites pants. DD isn't thrilled about wearing them, but prefers it to a wet bed. we try to maintain a sense of humour about it and not turn it into a big deal.

I night time TT my 2 middle daughters at aged 2&3. I was finding some nights they'd wake to go to the toliet or they'd have dry nappies so I put them in undies. Worked great they barely had any accidents but I did put them on the toliet before I went to bed at night for the first few weeks.
I also have a 6 year old DD that we night time TT doing the same thing but she hit a medical problem at 3.5years and been in pull ups ever since. She is such a heavy sleeper. I guess when she's ready she'll do it again.
