    Thank you for all of your comments and advice Here I was thinking she was behind, but it seems to be the norm

    On that note, are there any 'cheaper' pull up pants recommended? We get huggies nappy pants......

    Yes this it is a hormonal change in their body. Until that happens training is a waste of time and a stress for you and your child. 3 is still very young - there's a reason they have night time pull ups to 7 years of age.

    We have a 4 year old DD and two 8 year old DSs who still wet overnight. I'm convinced that it's genetic and that they will just get it when they're ready. My 8 year old is starting to have more dry nights than wet ones so he's not far off. And DP's 8 year old has started to have dry nights sometimes too.

    I'm glad I read this thread! Ds is 4.5 years and I was a little worried his night nappies are still pretty wet.

    I never really did anything to encourage mine to be dry at night. They did it in their own time.

    I've got a 7, 5, 3 year old and my youngest has been toilet trained for about 5/6 months but still wears nappies at night and they are always full in the morning.

    My 7 and 5 year old were both dry at night by the time they were 5 so I am not too worried about my youngest still being wet.

    DS is 4 and still in a nappy over night. I heard that it's normal and it was still an issue at 6 then to see someone.

    My DD1 was still wearing a nappy or pull ups to bed until she was 7-8, as she was a bedwetter. I wet my bed until I was about 8 and I have a brother who was in pull ups until he was about 10. It's nothing to be ashamed of, some kids wet the bed, some don't. Never punish a child, it makes them feel worse about themselves. My DD2 was out of nappies altogether before DD1. Your child will grow out of it eventually.
