How long after being dry by day was your LO(s) dry at night?

My 2 year old is now dry by day. But, although I've had 4 other children, I've completely forgotten their time lapses between being dry by day and dry by night!

  • It totally varied with my kids. My older 2 were trained during the day by 2.5. My oldest is 13 and still has accidents, but they are so much better than when he was 11. DD was night trained by her 3rd bday and has had maybe 3 accidents since.

    My youngest was dry during the day at 3 and night dry by 4.5. He does have accidents occasionally, usually when we are traveling or when he drinks too much at dinner.

  • DD was day trained at 2 1/2 and night dry 2 weeks later. I was surprised! SHe just kept waking up with a dry pull up,,, so after the 5th day of waking up dry, no more nighttime pull up.

  • I was fortunate. I can't remember how old they were but I think they were 2, certainly no older than 3, but when they were trained for days, they were also dry at night. There was no time lapse at all.

  • My oldest was dry at night a full year BEFORE she was day trained (she started staying dry at night around 22 months but didn't start using the potty during the day until after she turned 3. My youngest daughter was also dry at night before day training.
    My other two are bedwetters. My son was day trained at 2 1/2 and 7 years later he still wets the bed. My middle daughter was day trained at 3 1/2 and at 8 1/2 is still wetting the bed.

  • My son was 3 years old when he fully trained in 1 week. There were no time lapses.
