How do I get my kids out of night diapers?

I have tried everything i can think of and am out of ideas! I have tried taking diapers away at night, all that did was stink up there room and create more laundry! Have tried rewarding with stickers money activities, nothing seems to work

  • try to cut liquids after dinner. make them pee b4 bed...

    but remember some ppl cant help it. the lady who raised me wet the bed til she was 12. if you dont wake up you dont. if you do they usully go...some ppl are deep sleepers. Try taking them to a cycoligest /sp....they have nassel spreys and pills that are expose to help. my sis is 13 and is on them it works

  • Nothing to drink or eat after 6pm. Make them use the bathroom before bed. Maybe a doctor would be a good thing too.

  • First Off those who suggested punishment........shame on you. Do you really think a 12 year old and a 8 year old would wet the bed if they had a choice? First off make an appt with your doctor and make sure there is nothing physically wrong with them. Then get suggestions from the doctor. I can bet none of the suggestions will do with punishment.

  • Have you taken your daughters to their pediatrician ? My four year old sometimes wets his bed what we started doing was no liquids two hours before bedtime, before bedtime we make him use the potty,  We also have a night light on in our restroom. He has waken up dry for 3 months now DRY only one accident (normal)  Some kids are just deep sleepers, some kids may be lazy, some may have medical reasons.

  • Limit liquids after dinner to only a few sips before bed. Then start waking them up before you go to bed (best about 12/12:30 so if you go to bed early you may have to get up yourself). Do the sticker things too. Do the waking them up thing for at least a month. Still limit the the liquids, then stop waking them up. Hopefully they will either get up on their own about the same time after a month or doing this or, like my stepson, just not wet at night at all! It worked for me. Trust me, you will be tired and they may be a bit cranky at first waking them up in the middle of the night, but once they are night trained you'll look back and think it was totally worth it!
