    Default 3 yr old still in nappies at night time

    Hi all,

    Whilst our DD is toilet trained and is fine to wear undies during the day, when it comes to night times, we still need to have her in a nappy. In the mornings, her nappies are super wet.

    Any tips on how we can cut down / convert her to not wearing a nappy to bed please would be much appreciated

    hi there, try cutting off all liquids from 5pm, with several toilet trips between 5pm and bedtime, with a 'last wee' toilet trip right on bedtime. My DS2 who had a bottle before bed was in nappy overnight til almost 6. All the best!

    My 2.5 yo is TT during the day but is a super heavy wetter over night. Apparently they just become dry overnight in their own time. I'm hoping this is true for us but his nappies are SO full in the morning that he often wets through them, so I'm not holding my breath 😁

    Please do not restrict fluids. This doesn't teach anything. Children need to fill a full bladder.
    3 is still so young, I wouldn't be worried about night training.

    Way too young to worry about that yet.

    I know she drinks a lot at day care, and has a bit of water at home too - I don't want to encourage no drinking, esp of water.....

    We thought it still might be a few good years away

    You just have to wait until they're dry in their own time. Dont restrict fluids at any time of day; access to water is a must and important for their bodies.
    Toilet her before bed and allow to wear nappies/pull ups etc until you notice a continuous dry period. Make no mention of it etc to her, just let it be the norm for night nappies and just take off first thing in morning or when needing to toilet at night

    My DD was day trained by 2 but still wore a pull up until she turned 6.

    She just did it in her own time

    Definately don't restrict fluids! My DD is 5.5 and still has a super wet nappy every morning. My CHN explained to me that it has nothing to do with 'training' them at night. It's all about when the signal is strong enough to wake them overnight and they don't worry about it until they are age 8. If you try and 'train' them at night all it does is train them to wake each night to go to the toilet.

    Just be patient it will happen in her own time. From what i understand its a change in hormones that help them stay dry overnight and wake if they need the toilet so stressing over it, or restricting fluids is not going to help.

    Both my girls took till after they turned 4 to be dry overnight and even then there were occasional accidents for another 6ish mths
