Do you put a diaper on them during the first few days, when they go down for a nap & bedtime?
Planning on it. I just wasn't sure about nights. I was assuming to put diapers on during these times, then give it time to nap/night train him!
Quoting snowangel1979:Are you just starting. My children really didn't get the nighttime down untill about a year after they were potty trained.
Just put a towel underneath.
Day training and night training are 2 completely separate issues. You can day train a child but can't night train them. Staying dry while sleeping is a matter of physical maturation where a hormone is released in the brain. It happens when it happens and we don't have any say in it. With some kids it happens early and they are dry at night the same time they are day training. Others day train but need sleep help for quite a while afterward. Use a diaper/pull-up for naps/sleeping until your child wakes up dry for at least 2 weeks and then try without. Protect your mattress.
It depends. My oldest never had to night train because she woke up dry every night by 18 months. But my second (2 years) still wakes up wet sometimes so she wears a pull-up at night. I've never had to do that for naps but she doesn't take naps every day and when she does it's usually only for a hour or maybe two.
I did for the first week with my youngest, but she kept waking up dry so we stopped. Night time can last longer with needing a pull up or diaper for some kids
My daughter is 4 and is potty trained during day and nap time but no such luck at night. Any tips?
