I have a 4 year old that is potty trained and has been since she was 2. The only issue that I am running into is sometimes at night she wets the bed. The issue that i have is that when she does it she doesnt seem to wake up or notice that she did it until morning.
I have considered getting the goodnights for her, but I have seen them and they are just like diapers, only bigger and I know thats something she is not going for.
So I went to the dollar store and bought one of those waterproof shower curtains and put it on her mattress. It has helped catch the issue, but not solved the problem.
Any Ideas?

as far as the bed wetting is concerned what is happening is she is so sound asleep she just doesn't feel it, don't make a big deal out of it because she honestly isn't doing it on purpose. My son didn't like the goodnights either so I bought special sheets that keep the mattress from getting wet I think they are called pee pads and we just calmly changed his sheets put new ones on and ignored the actual wetting by age 6 the bed wetting completely disappeared am now using the special sheets with my 3 year old who is not quite night trained as she takes off her bedtime pullup when she is wet and doesn't get a new one.

my son was day time toilet trained at three. i had the same problem you are having.i would get him up before i went to bed for one last go on the toilet and i limited his drinks at dinner time. he is now four and he still gets taken to the toilet once a night but he now keeps it dry and on rare occasions he gets up himself. do not worry some children just take longer to be night time toilet trained. i was seven when i finally kept my bed dry and my mum tried everything. it just takes time and persistent.

Do not pressure your child. Sometimes early daytime potty training can mean it takes longer for night time training. We used to wake our daughter up when we were going to bed to get her to go one more time.

We dont make a big deal out of it, we get her up cleaned up and if its in the middle of the night back to bed she goes, I love the shower curtain we put on her bed, but there are stains underneath on the mattress and no idea how to get them out. She is in a twin size bed, not a toddler bed so no waterproof mattress. Any ideas on how to get them out?
