My DS2 just turned 2 in February and last month just randomly decided he wanted to start using the toilet (thank you DS1 for inspiring him!!). He is now in undies full time and only having the odd accident.
My question is this.... For the last 3 weeks each morning when he wakes I ask if he wants to do a wee which he usually replies no. I leave it for a bit and wait for him to ask. This can be anywhere from 1-2 hours after waking. When we do take the night nappy off it's completely dry. He doesn't wee during the night!!!! He takes a water bottle to bed and can drink half a bottle. Does this kid have a bladder the size of a basketball or what?!? I can't even make it through the night!!!
The only reason I was asking is because my DS1 was a heavy wetter at night even after he'd been toilet trained for ages. He was wet at night until he was almost 5!!! Doesn't wet the bed now but took him ages to become dry at night. Is DS2 just weird?!?
Any experiences or opinions would be appreciated
Me + DH = DS1 (6), DS2 (2) and #3 due September 8th

My DD2 night trained at the same time as she day trained. DD has never wet the bed since TTing. Maybe your DS is the same!

Dd was very similar. It could be over an hour after she woke up before going to the toilet and still had a dry nappy at night.
She also night tt really well with not many accidents at night.

Some kids just have amazing bladder control. My DD is 2.5, toilet trained herself at 18 months, and has barely had an accident since. She does not wear a nappy to bed, and often takes a water bottle to bed. She's only wet the bed once. Quite often when she wakes it's not the first thing she does either, and I have to remind her and insist she goes before we leave for kindy. Can be normal for some I think

My son is the same, was toilet trained at about 2 and a half even overnight, this kid drinks like a fish and always has a drink for bed and no accidents, my daughter however, we have to practically force her to drink, she's almost 6 and wears a pull up to bed and it's neatly always wet!!
So I believe it's normal, they're all different

DS1 was the same, in undies just after 2 even overnight and could wait until 11 some days before he needed to go if I didn't tell him he had to go. He could wait, I just didn't feel comfortable with it.

Thanks for the feedback guys good to know there are others like it! It's just a shock as DS1 was such a heavy wetter I was fully expecting the same again.
