Younger one is potty training faster than the older one...

My three and a half year old has been daytime potty trained since she was under 2... but she's still peeing at night.



My two and a half year old (they're a year and 20 days apart) switched fully to underwear a few weeks ago, and has been waking up dry every day for over a week.



I want to praise my younger one, but don't want to make my older daughter feel bad about it. Any ideas on how to teach her to wake up dry? Has anyone ever tried just switching them to underwear at night and letting them feel it? Or should I just wait in case her body is just not ready to wake up to pee?



Thanks for any advice (or sympathy - haha) that you have to offer!

Yeah, I've been really limiting drinks within 2 hours of bed time. She's allowed to take the tiniest sip of water before bed because otherwise she's really thirsty. :-\ I really think she just doesn't wake up at night. If I'm wrong and she's being lazy, then I am hoping seeing her younger sister wear underwear for bed will encourage her to use the potty at night.

Stop giving fluids after a certain time, my daughter is 16 months and is daytime potty trained but pees in her diaper once at night and I limit her fluid intake to 48 ounces a day and no fluids after 6p. I'm going to wait until she lets me know that she's wet at night (she wears size 1 diapers at night) so i can teach her to go at night. Best of luck!
