  • Staying dry through the night has always been our last thing to tackle when potty training. My 3 y.o daughter still wears pull ups at night. I have her go right before bed.... and if i'm up late, I'll sometimes have her go again before I go to bed (she usually goes right back to sleep) and then have them go first thing in the morning. It's just one of those things I think that takes time!

  • Yes, pull ups at night until their bladder matures.

  • Put those night underwear on till they can get a hang of not wetting the bed. They look like underwear. Maybe try not giving them any liquids after dinner and make them use the restroom before thy hit the sack

  • My children all stopped night time wetting on their own between 2 and 5. I used cloth nappies that were made for older children and had to use a doubler pad with one of my children. I suppose a disposable nappy would serve the same purpose. Since they have no control over night time wetting you just do what you have to do until they out grow it.

  • I've 5 and I've had them all in nappies through the night until they have been dry 3 nights in a row, then I've had them in knickers or pants (regular undies) with a waterproof cover on the mattress. After the odd wet night, they were all then dry. But that point has come quite a few months after they were dry by day. x

  • If it's just an occasional accident - I don't do anything but wash the sheets. I keep a plastic sheet on under the regular to protect the mattress. But if it's a regular thing, I kept them in something more protective - whether a pull-up or whatever.

  • My son is 6 and he has not stopped bed wetting and so I had to get a bed cover to keep my mattress from being damaged. He is now back in underpants at night because he has not mastered it yet. Any suggestions anyone.

  • Never used pull-ups. What a scam. All they are is fancy diapers.

    Went from diaper to underwear. Bought a plastic sheet to go over mattress for night time.
