My daughter was 5.5 before becoming dry at night in her own time and hasn't had an accident since.
I don't think any "experts" would be concerned until at least age 7.
Where did you read that after 4 they'll be a bed wetter?

I would continue with dry nites.

My sis has twins - girl day/night dry at 2.5. Boy day dry at 3, night not till 7. Apparently his dad was a wetter too. She tried everything - even moved him to the bedroom closest to the toilet, set alarms, woke him, reward charts etc. he'd go a few nights dry but nothing consistent, then one day he just stopped wetting.
I think you can encourage, but it's up to the individual child it seems.

I read it on the Conni bed pad website.

What's the difference between nappy pull ups and dry nites?

My DS was nearly six before he was dry at night. It is a hormonal thing. I would just leave things be until he is ready. You cant force it. Dont limit drinks and dont wake him up in the night. Stick with the pull ups and dont make a big fuss out of it.

dd was easy to train overnight, I started waking her up around 10-11pm before I went to bed to use the toilet, then took the nappies away at night and kept waking her for another couple of weeks or so and she got it just like that. Was just before 4 I think. Never had an accident yet (she's 6)
Ds is a lot harder. He's 4.3 years and still needs a nappy at night, I'm doing the same wake up before I go to bed routine but putting a nappy back on after he's gone, and 3 out of 7 mornings he will wake up dry so he's getting there slowly.
Eta. I use the dry nites also, they are more like undies and come in bigger sizes which ds needs or he sometimes wets through

TBH, I wouldn't necessarily trust anything written on a website selling bed pad thingies. They want you to buy them!
I was lucky and DS was dry at night around 3, but took longer than his friends to TT. But then his friends still wear nappies at night, so like a PP said, it varies from child to child.
I personally wouldn't worry yet. 4 is big in a lot of ways, but also still little in others. Give time time. He'll most likely figure it out.

Is just keep using the pull-ups, no harm done.

ive been wondering when i should try and let my nearly 4yr old go without a nappy to bed but im worried and really dont want to deal with the mess.
how do i know when she is ready or is there a way to progress into it, im a single father and dont really know what im doing.
