Forgot to mention... I did put them in pull-ups when napping or at bed time. They will have accidents while sleeping. My girls stopped wetting the bed around age 4, it wasn't every night they pee'd. I bought one of those fitted vinyl bed protectors.

Both my girls were potty trained by the time they turned 3. Pull ups don't work as they are just like diapers and they don't feel when they are wet. I even tried the ones that get cold when wet, no help! I put potty training under wear on them (the cotton, thick ones). They will wet them and it will get on the floor. But at least they will realize the feeling of having to go. No one likes wet clothes, so she/he will want to keep dry. Give it a few months and she/he will get the hang of it. Hope this helps.

Ah the joys of potty training i have a 3yr old girl and she is finally potty trained and going on the big potty and not having accidents over night ! what i did is this i tried the pull ups and they did not work they seemed to be just like a diaper so i went out and bought a whole bunch of underwear for her yes its alot of laundry but it seemed that when she had a accident she didnt like how it felt so to prevent the accidents i put her on her potty about every hour to an hout and a half even if i didnt have to go i would sit there with her i would give her a book or something or a toy to keep her entertained we would sit there for about 20 minutes just waiting if she didnt go i would take her in there about a half hour later and when she would finally go i would give her alot of praise kids tend to love that especially little girls i would say wow what a big girl you were and she was so proud of herself my daughter has been potty trained since shes been 2 and now she still calls me into the bathroom to praise her she says mommy are you so proud of me and i say yes honey im so proud of you ! well i hope i could at least help you out a little by this ! Good luck to you

My daughter was easy after I started going with her, I know it sounds weird, but every two hours I would act like I had to go and then have her go to, it became a game, racing to the bathroom and see who goes first, and she loved the praise after she went. My son on the other hand was a bit different, it actually took putting him in big boy undies, and multiple changes of clothes for a few days before he started telling me if he had to go (he didn't like the wet feeling and nothing else had worked), every child is different, so sometimes you have to take some unorthodox steps to get them interested, but with both it seems, that lots of praise and making it fun helped.
