My son is 4 and still in night time nappies.
He has had quite a few dry nights so I know he is capable of holding it over night. A few times he has also come into my room at night and asked for help to go to the toilet.
These are not happening on a regular basis.
I am limiting his fluid intake from 5pm, he goes to bed at 7pm
Should I limit it earlier in the day???
2 nights ago he came into my room to go to the toilet (not sure what time it was) after I put him back to bed he took his nappy off and stayed dry for the rest of the night.
I know alot of mums wake their child up to take them to the toilet over night, but my main concern with this is that my son has sleep apenea. He doesn't sleep properly anyway and this is having a huge impact on his behaviour. I am not keen on the idea of waking him up and disturbing already disturbed sleep and dealing with worse behaviour than I already am.
So any mums out there with kids with sleep apenea, how did you get them dry at night???
Any tips and tricks would be most helpful.
