Hey Everyone! My name is Caylyn, I'm 23, Married from Florida. My daughter Jaycie is in Daycare and they wont move her until she is completely potty trained...She is doing pretty good just has an accident like once a day...This weekend she hasn't had one yet. (crosses fingers) Last night i bought a mattress pad...This morning when she woke me up..she had clean panties on, but the bed was wet and the wet undies were on the floor....lol. She changes herself and wipes herself off. I gave her a bath and put new underwear on and washed the sheets...but is this normal? How long does it take to stop peeing in the bed at night? Should i talk to her about it? I just dont want to have to wash the sheets every night.

Do you give her a drink to go to bed with still? My daughter does better with not wetting the bed at night if she doesn't get a drink for bed and I make sure she goes potty before she goes to bed...

My son is 5 and still has some problems at nighttime.  When his training started he was allowed to progress to underpants during the day, but diapers at night because he wet almost every night.  Then as he started getting better at night, he moved to pull-ups at night instead of diapers.  He wears plastic pants over the pull-ups which prevents leaks.  This has worked pretty well.  I still use a reward program for dry mornings, which are getting more and more frequent.  The pull-ups and plastic pants don't usually wake him up in the middle of the night so we don't have the sleep issues we would with him waking so much during the night.  They also prevent leeks and he is not as embarrassed in the morning if there was an accident because he could more discreetly clean up by himself.  I also restrict his liquid intake after dinner to bare minimum.   Hope it might help.

She seems to understand that the two are related and that the beds wet because she is.Maybe she drinks to much before bed?Getting her up during the night may work if she's in bed for more than 9 hours.I wake my son before i go to bed and take him to the bath then put him back to bed.Just remember, a nightlight or very little light, u don't want her fully awake, other wise she may have trouble falling back to sleep.Accidents are regular.Is it once in awhile or every night?I'd suggest a late night bathroom trip would probably be ur best bet.Good Luck!!
