Our son is now 14 months, big build and strong as an ox! Started walking at 10 months, but very slow on the talking side, saying Ehhh, in million different ways, and starting to TA you everything. He lovessssssss his mild at night, have tried reducing it to less, succeeded in getting him to 2 bottles a night. He is soaking wet in the morning. Have tried all the nappy brands, got stuck on Pampers Active baby, size 5, but still, 2 out of 7 mornings he is not soaked, the rest he is. What do to?? Winter is approaching, afraid he is gonna freeze his little butt off and fall ill from the cold and damp clothes at night.???

My Dr. told me at our 9 month check up that they should be eating enough through the day to not need a bottle during the night. He suggested trying to wean her from the night-time bottles. What I did was started giving her water instead of milk. I also noticed that she wasn't actually finishing the bottles at night, just drinking a ounce or 2 then falling back to sleep. Honestly, it made for several bad nights. And I am like your husband, I don't like letting babies cry and not giving them what they want. I broke down and gave her a milk bottle several times. So, I totally understand how frustrating that can be. Maybe you could try it out on a weekend, when you don't have to get up for work. I also remember when potty training my older kids that we tried to push more fluids on them throughout the day and reduce the amount of fluids after dinner to try to get them not to wet the bed at night.



The only other suggestion I have is try using a doubler(like maybe an adult incontinence pad in the diaper to absorb more).

Maybe you could try giving him more to eat and drink during the day? My middle boy has had a non leak sippy cup next to his pillow since his was about your sons age, so he can get a drink for himself and not wake us up!  The only other thing I can suggest with the wet diapers is what I said before about the night time diapers/pull-ups.

He eats at 18:00, bathes at 18:30 and get to bed at 19:00, I don't really wanna bother with a nappy in the middle of the night, experience has shown that he gets up and then its happy days are here again untill sunrise.  I know the main problem is that he probably is drinking too much during the night, but to take his milk away is a disaster, he simple cries for more, and then nobody sleeps, I decided thats more important having full work days ahead after such nights, and anyways, my hubby cant stand to let him cry and not fulfill his needs.

Have you tried using night time pull ups or diapers? I used them for my two eldest boys and it was very rare that they were wet in the morning - and they loved to drink gallons of water before bed and had a drink for during the night.

You could always try changing him in the middle of the night. How long before bed is his bath, you could try having it an hour to an hour and half before bed. My son always pees after bath a couple times before bed.
