  • Wake them up half way through the night and take them to the bathroom.

  • I didn't. Once they were trained during the day (by their 3rd birthdays), they were trained at night too.

  • I cut off liquid an hour or more before bed-time and make sure he pee pee's just before bed. Also, my son did better when I put him in big boy undies. He actually had more accidents in pull-ups. I'm sure each child is different. I don't want to be disagreeable with the previous post, but I don't think that's the best idea. It doesn't train them to hold it and learn to control. It may create a bad habit of having to be taken to the potty in the middle of the night, every night!! Good Luck Momma!

  • set an alarm and wake them during the night!!!!! I know this sounds rather weird but they'll start waking up if they feel the urge to go.
