  • my son will be 5 in july and he still wears pull ups at night. they make special ones for big kids. i'm not concerned, i know he'll quit eventually. all kids bladder muscles develop at different times, and some kids really can't help it...some kids at 2 or 3, but usually 5 or 6. no big deal.

  • I don't think you really can. He might not be physically able to hold his bladder all night or he might be a bed wetter. My son just stopped wearing pull-ups at night this past summer and he turned 7 in October. he still wets the bed every few days or so.

  • I have two boys who are 11 now it took them along time to get the night time down and sometimes they still have accidents but my boys are autistic also.

    I am training my daughter she is 3.5 yrs and she doesnt want to train shes half way there but I put goodnights on her they are very absorbent better than diapers at this age but I make her sit on the potty before bed and use it and i limit drinks down at night after dinner she get s only a small amount to drink. my sons sleep so deep its tougher at night good luck I know how frustrating it is.
