My daughter is 3 yr 4 months. She is mostly potty trained, she's doing a great job during the day, but at night she is still going pee. she always wakes up with a wet pull up. Any suggestions on how to keep her dry at night? I have tried incentives. a star chart, so if she wakes up with a dry pull-up she gets a star... it's day five and no stars.

I had to get rid of pull ups and diapers. I have 3 children and this worked with all of them. Put her in regular underwear at night, less drinks before bed, a quick potty break before she lays down and as much as I hated it, use to get up in the middle of night got my kids up to use the potty and laid them back down. She will catch on to this and start doing it herself.

Limit drink time. Like here no drinks after 5pm. Wake her up in the middle of the night and say let's go to the bathroom.

I've got the same problem - my daughter is almost 4 & I take her to the toilet about 2hrs after she goes to bed to try to keep her dry else she wets the bed. She just sleeps too deeply to realise she needs to go. I had no trouble with my other children - they were dry at night by about 2/3 yrs - so I have had to try different stuff with her. She also doesn't have anything to drink after 7pm except a small sip of water

oh please don't think that I punish her for peeing the bed.. I don't. I tell her it's ok and just change the sheets. but if she doesn't pee, then she gets rewarded and a happy dance from mommy :)

First of all there are kids who are deep sleepers and are unable to control their bladder at night. 3 years is still young, talk to your dr. I have 4 kids - two are still in pullups at night at 7 years and 5 years. Their dad was unable to control his bladder until he was in middle school. It might be genetic. We have tried many things bed wetting alarms, no drinks after 6, waking the child 2 times per night and nothing works. Rewards nor punishments will work, just time. Be patient let her grow up without feeling bad about bed wetting. It may not be her fault and you may give her a complex. There are few kids who are in high school and still have the problem. If you are really worried talk to the dr and read up on the internet there is a lot out there. I hope this helps. relax just be a good mom.

Ya I've tried waking her up with the same result as you lol. hey the panties under the pullups are a good idea, I will try that tonight thanks

Also....I was just told from a friend that her daughter did better when she felt the wet-ness so she put her underware on at night then a pull-up over it so she felt it when she wet and a week later was completely night time trained. I haven't tried it yet, I will tonight. (As long as it doesn't look to tight on her).

I was just going to ask the same question for everyone but realized that you asked it. The suggestions I got were: 1. Reward them in morning (Like you did stickers or candy) 2. Let them wet after a while they'll learn (I almost went two weeks of wetting) no improvement. 3. Limit the drinking at night. 4. Wake them up and teach them to go potty even during the night (She never went pee for me she just screemed that she had to wake up and get out of bed) I am like you at a loss but I thought u could use some advice that was given to me, just incase that will work for you. 5. The last advice I got is they will do it when they are good and ready. I am working on #1, 3 and 5 right now! Good luck!
