My daughter will be 4 at the end of August. She is completely potty trained during the day but at night we still have her in a pull up. I am just not sure at what age kids should be expected to stay dry all night. I know at the sitters there are 5 year olds still wearing pull ups at naptime. When she wakes up her pull up is still really wet but I know from experience that if she is wearing a pull up she will not always use the potty. Should I try and put her in regular panties at night or is she still too young??? Sorry if this is a dumb question but she is my oldest and I had never been around child before I had my own so I am not sure when to expect this.Answer Question

For the past couple of weeks we have been doing 45 minute rest time versus naps given she will be starting Junior Kindergarten in August. Before that she did take naps at the sitters but refused to at home and would end up playing in her room. When I would go and get her from her room she would be sometimes be wet but like a said if she is wearing panties she will use the potty but if she is wearing a pull up she does wet in them. My sitter has never really told me how she does. I am not sure at this point if it is because she is wearing a pull up or if she is not capable of waking up if she has too go. There is sometimes that I feel my sitter nags and yells at the children more than using positive reinforcements and prefers to take the easy road then deal with messes. It took me until my DD was 3 before she was potty trained and I think it was because of how it was being handled at the sitters.
