Night time potty training!

Anne-Marie - posted on 01/10/2010 ( 3 moms have responded )




My son is almost 4, in March, and still in pull ups at night, and he still wets through them ! I am so tired of changing sheets! We make sure he goes potty before bed, and I try to be conscious of him not drinking too much before bed, but it still happens! Any ideas!!

My older son, Kaleb who is now 5.5 was the same way. He eventually outgrew it when he turned 4. We just put pull-ups on him everynight before he went to bed. Everyonce in awhile, he will wet the bed now. But it is usually when he is extremly tired because he is a hard sleeper and won't get up in the middle of the night to pee if he is overly exhausted. So I still try to get him down for atleast a 1hr nap each day and it cuts down on the frequency of bed wetting. I think night potty training is a milestone. He will eventually get there. I think my ped said it wasn't anything to worry about until he turned 7. Good luck!!

My 3 yearold daughter is going through the samething. We have started limiting her drinking at night we stop liquids after her supper which is usually around 7pm. Maker her go potty right before her bath @ 8 pm then make her potty again at 9 right before she crawls in bed. It has worked so far we are going on 2 weeks with no accident. You have to watch the pull ups at night b/c she had a BAD UTI from the pull up being on over night and having a little tee tee in it was enough for the bacteria.

It is a pain to be soo strict w/drinks b/c you have to try to make meal time around about the same time everynight to be consistant and when you get the but mommy i want a popscile or anything else that will make her need to go later we just tell her if you have ______now you may potty in your tinkerbell bed. :) she says tinkerbell does not like to have tee tee on her :)

Hope this helps

Make sure he doesnt drink anything a few hours before going to bed. Also, my recommendation is to start putting underwear on him to go to sleep. If he knows he doesn't have the protection of a pull up he might take better to getting up to go to the bathroom. You might also want to wake him up during the night to go to the bathroom. I know its a pain, but it'll definitely help. Depending on what time he goes to sleep get him up maybe every 4 hours. He'll be sleepy and most like cranky but he'll get used to getting up to go to the bathroom. It only took my son a couple of tries when he was 2, now the only time he has an accident is when he can't get his footsie pajamas off fast enough.
