How do I get my 3.5 year old to stay dry through the night. She will pee her bed and not wake up.

I started putting my daughter in underwear at night about that age and then would wake her up before going to bed myself to take her to the bathroom (usually around 11). We did that for about a month and she didn't have any problem at all. Then, I quit waking her up and she would wake herself up at about that time and go. She did that for about 2 weeks and then started sleeping through the night dry. She has been doing that for about a month and has only had one accident, which I think is pretty good!

Does your daughter still take naps? The same thing happened to my daughter whom quit taking naps at 2. She would go to bed at night and just be so tired she didn't realize she had to go. I put her back on a nap schedule after lunch for atleast an hour and after about a month things got better at night. Do the pull up until it gets better and remember every child is different.

Hi, try to wake her up everynight, let say 3 am and guide her to the comfort room and pee, until she get the habbit of waking up if she has the urge to pee. This worked for me and my kid now 3 years old. Only trained her for about a week... but there are times that she still pee in the bed. =)

You can limit fluids, as other moms have suggested, and of course have her go before she goes to bed. You can also bring her to go again before YOU go to bed. But you can't make them ready...every child is different, she'll start staying dry when she is ready. Put her in a pull up and don't worry about it. Also, bear in mind that if YOU were late staying dry at night, she is likely to be too. There are way more important things to worry about, especially at this age!

My 3.5 yr old is potty trained but still in pull ups at night. I have found that you either have to wake them up to get them used to going in the middle of the night. Now if they already don't sleep through the night, which mine hasn't, then when they wake up make sure you take them to the potty.



Also try to keep them off drinks 2 hrs before they go to bed that might help???

Hi Amanda is right you need to limit how much she drinks. Or you need to wake him up at least two times durning the night to take him to do pee. Sometimes they get angry because they don't like to be waken up but it works.

Have you tryd not giving your todler a drink just before bed and take them to the toilet before they do goto bed? If your todler is not waking up to go to the toilet then maybe it is a bladder problem n you might have to seek help from a doctor or pediatrition.

regulate fluid before bed, make her go potty before bed and hope. it takes kids awhile to wake up and go potty it is a hormonal thing .Pull-up for bed. I have started a reward system to encourage staying dry through out the night (with in punishment if wet) when he gets 10 stars in a row he gets a surprise.

I used to have the same trouble with my daughter. I started limitting the amount of liquid she could have after supper and definately not let her have anything to drink when she went to bed until she learned to wake up when she had to go potty in the night. Now we are doing fine and if she drinks too much before bed or when she goes to bed, mommy better be ready to get up once or twice in the night to go potty. LOL. Hope this helps and is a start for you, if not, let me know a little more about the situation and I'll see if I have any more ideas. Amanda
