When I potty trained my daughter, we went cold turkey on diapers. She helped me throw them all in the trash and I never used pull-ups. I tested the waters a few times by having her sleep on the floor (I made it fun by calling it a camp out) with a plastic garbage bag underneath the quilt she slept on. Once I knew she could make it through the night, she slept in her own bed. Good luck!

Hi Danielle, My husband and i didn't stop putting on diapers until almost 6 months after she was potty trained. The reason being is that even though she is not peeing her bladder might not be strong enough. I would wait.

I think it is different for everyone. My oldest was dry by 2. THe youngest stopped peeing at night around 2 years 3 mos. My sister was 7 because she couldn't feel when she had to go due to thicker than usual bladder walls.
