  • As long as you get him to the restroom right after him waking up then he can wear them to bed.

  • I think if he's waking up dry, and more importantly waking himself up when he has to go to the bathroom, then he's ready.

    Don't be discouraged if there's still an occasional accident, just use a waterproof sheet to make it an easy clean up.

  • The rule in my house is when you wake up 3 days in a row dry you can wear underwear to bed. DS was over 5 when he accomplished this. Just make sure to have a protective cover over the mattress.

  • Age 2.5. I don't allow any drinks an hour before bed.

  • Tell him he can keep wearing it as long as he stays dry. When he has an accident go back to the pull ups.
