My son is 3.5 years old and has been day potty trained for over six months. He is an incredibly stubborn child and my mother has even said she has never seen a child as stubborn as him before (in all aspects, not just potty training). He sleeps for about 10 - 12 hours a night and when his diapers were dry for about five days I started him just wearing underwear to bed but he still wet the bed. There were times when he would wake up dry for a day or two a week, but then for three weeks straight he wet the bed every single night. He is a sound sleeper and will only wake up crying about wet sheets once the pee has become cold. We have tried cutting out liquids for hours before bed. We have tried warm baths before bed. He doesn't mind wearing a pull up to bed and it is almost always completely soaked by the time he wakes up in the morning.
Aside from waking him up every couple hours to force him to pee, I don't know what options I have left. I would like to hear any suggestions, since nothing seems to be working. Maybe he just isn't ready and needs more time?
