    Default ASD and night toilet training.

    Anyone else have lots of trouble getting their ASD child out of night nappies? DS2 is 5 now and still no sign of being dry at night.

    I am looking for some tips if anyone has any. Thanks!

    I'm sorry I don't have any tips, but I have one friend who's ASD son became dry at 5, and one who at 7 is still wet. I think it's one of those "it will happen when they're ready" thinks which of course isn't what anyone wants to hear. Good luck!

    @beebs my nephew was never dry at night, and so at around 8 his father took him to a gp who put him on medication to help (not sure what it was but I can ask) and it worked extremely quickly.

    My sister had literally tried everything. He's an extremely heavy sleeper and no amount of alarms or anything else worked.

    She was incredibly reluctant to use medication but it was so easy once they did she was relieved. He's never had any problems since.

    Thanks for that, I think I may start looking into that. He is a very heavy sleeper as well.

    Both mine are ASD. My DS didnt get dry at night until he was over 6. Most doctors wont do anything until they are 7. Best thing I ever did was stop stressing about it and stop saying anything to him. Went and invested in some good quality mattress protectors and when he wanted to try just supported him. I really think not making a fuss is the key. X

    Totally agree re not making a big deal, I guess part of the problem is that he sleeps with me - not sure if it is an anxiety thing or not? But when he wants to go without pull ups - he wets my bed, not his own.
