Night time potty training

How old do you start night time potty training? My dd turned 3 in September and is currently wearing pull ups at night and only really has accidents when she doesn't go potty before she goes to sleep. I just don't know how to start. Any suggestions would be helpful.

I'm in the same boat except my daughter is 2 1/2 and only pees in the potty during the day. She still wears a diaper to bed and wakes up really wet so I know she isnt ready for night time training yet.

The 3 day potty training method said stop giving liquid around 5pm (ya, right...lol). It also says lay by their bed the first few nights and when you hear them stir around see if they need to go pee. I bet if you just put her in undies at night and she pees once or twice it'll click that she needs to hold it.

Good luck! Potty training is hard!

With my son, Stevie all I do is make sure he pees right before he goes to bed, and all he gets to drink is water. He stopped wearing pullups around 2 1/2 years.  I started by by makeing sure he was dry at night before i  took away the pullups...

We skipped pull ups.  I trained my son in diapers then put him in underwear with diapers at night and nap time.  He was usually a little wet in the mornings.  He just started fighting wearing one at night so we tried it.  He had two accidents in the first week and now, about 3 mos later he hasn't had any more.  I try not to give him too much to drink before bed.  If he wakes up durning the night then we have him go potty, but he can often hold it all night.  Maybe you can try it when she feels comfortable with the idea.  Good luck!

Sorry, but there isn't a way to night train. The only thing you can really do is not to give them anything to drink past 6 or 7 and hope for the best.

DD hasn't been wet at night since I cut all liquids an hour before bedtime.  She isn't potty trained but likes to go so maybe if you cut out fluids/snacks before bed (if you haven't already) that could help.

my daughter just turned 2 in aug. She has been potty trained for about a month. We are so happy about it! she doesn't pee at night. We have dinner every night at 6 and she only gets 4 oz of water at night after that. She does have milk if she is really thirsty. We woke her up before we went to bed each night for about a week. It has worked so far...once she could go on the potty..we got rid of the pullups. try waking her up before you go to bed. it becomes a habit. also take the pull up offf so she will know that she is doing it. Good luck!
