  • I kept my son in diapers at night until he was ready on his own. Its harder for them at night because they are so small & dont realize. My son was potty trained completely by 2 except at night was probably 6 months later. Trust me its more frustrating to deal with accidents in the middle of the night then with a diaper at night!

  • It can take a long time before they are dry at night. I know children who have been 6, 8, even 10 before being dry all night. It varies all over the place and is completely normal. It is a bladder maturity issue. Use the pullups as long as it takes and relax about it.

  • Sounds like you're doing a great job so far and dry nights just take time, so keep up the good work!

  • time. just give her time. It can take a while for her (or any kid) to develop the muscle control to make it through the night. In fact I once read that 70% of children will have accidents at night till the age of 6!! Potty training isn't just about her understanding and making the effort, its about her body learning as well. Each child is different. I would stick with pullups (or diapers is what I did) till she starts having most nights dry. My daughter was about 3yrs and 5 mo old before we stopped putting her in diapers at night. She still has accidents, probably 2-3 a month. Each kid is different. Just keep up the positive reinforcement during the day, and don't sweat the night yet. I have started asking myself (is this an issue I will have to deal with 5 yrs from now?)... She will grow out of it, no need to fuss or worry.
