My 3 yr old little boy is potty trained for the most part. He can stay in underwear all day with no problems. At night, How do i go about potty training him while he sleeps? My husband is in Iraq so I am having to do all this on my own . Any help will be greatly appreciated!!!

you could try cutting out liquids like 3 hours before bedtime, be sure to send him to the bathroom immediately before bed, and try waking him up before you go to bed and send him to the bathroom.  It may sound cruel, but waking him may train his body to wake up when he has to go.  Some kids just can't wake up at night and maybe nighttime pull-ups and patience is all you can do.
Good Luck.

Both of my kids did not stop using a pull-up at bedtime and naptime until they were well in their 4th year. My daughter just stopped requiring them a couple of months ago. I think 3 is too young to expect their little bladders to hold it for that long or to wake-up when they have to go.

You could try the other poster's idea of cutting out liquids 3 hours before bedtime and see if it helps.

I also agree with the other moms advice my daughter is 4 and she just stopped going potty at night.  It just takes some time and it is very normal for him to still be wearing pull ups at night.  Hang in there.

HI THERE. I'LL TELL YOU WHAT I DONE WITH MY OLDEST SON. ONCE I GOT HIM POTTY TRAINED I WOULD PUT A PULL UP ON HIM AT NIGHT. I WOULDN'T ( AND STILL WON'T) LET HIM DRINK ANYTHING AFTER 6 PM (HE GOES TO BED AT 7:30) AND I MADE SURE HE USED THE BATHROOM BEFORE BEDTIME. I KEPT HIM IN A PULL UP AT NIGHT UNTIL I NOTICED HE WENT ABOUT 2 - 3 NIGHTS WAKING UP THE NEXT DAY WITH A DRY PULL UP. YOU REALLY CAN'T TRAIN A CHILD FOR NIGHT, THAT PART WILL TAKE SOME TIME AND REMEMBER EVEN AFTER THEY ARE COMPLETELY POTTY TRAINED... ACCIDENTS DO HAPPEN. I HOPE I HELPED A LITTLE.

I would agree to cut the drinks out & taking them to the potty before bed time. Leave a pull up on and when he wakes up in the morning and didn't go potty in his pull-up praise him & let him know that you are proud of him. Praise goes a long way with those little people :)

Pullups my dear or over nights.  This way he feels he is a big boy stil just in case he has an accident.  


let him know it is alright if he has an accident during the night night.

 cutting out the liquids is the main thing.  my daughter has never really gotten much to drink after 530pm..and even if she does its usually just a teeeeny tin lil sip.
