  • When they are able to go all night without wetting the bed. It's a different age for every child.

  • That's what I thought but I am tired!! NOt sure why I am up really... Anyway. There is not real set age. Kids develope night time bladder control at different rates. It's not uncommon for the to have bed wetting all the way up to age 6-7. My DS stopped at 5 where my DD stopped at 3.5. Though I discovered by accident she only wet them at night because she could... I ran out one night and she woke up dry so never bought any more...

  • Until a child gets to age 12, it is considered perfectly normal for their bodies to not be producing the hormone that slows urine production overnight.

  • I agree with the every child is different thing. BUT if you stop giving drinks after 7pm and child goes to bed at 9pm, they shouldn't have anything in them to pee in the bed. That's the rule in my house. Those pull ups are just so expensive. My youngest had a slight issue with bed wetting but it's not something kids do on purpose, it's just a learning process so he doesn't get in trouble and I don't get upset...we have those cool plastic mattress covers just in case.

  • Personaly i think you can train any child to be night time trained by 3 at the latest(normal developing kids) I have trained my 2 one by age 2 and the other 2 1/2. I told many friends how i did it and they followed it and were able to do so as well.SO, you just have to try.

  • Personally I think pull-ups are a huge waste of money! They are not needed at all. I'd say by age 3 to 3.5 a child (normally developing) should be fully potty trained, even at night. If you put the pull-up on after this they will continue to just pee, because they have it on. At first while still training, just use diapers at night, they are cheaper. Start with no diaper at nap time, then work up to no diaper at bedtime.

  • Thats hard to say, some kids can't hold their pee overnight, so they have to use them. Normally if they don't have that problem then about age 3.
