we had problems with training our oldest she was 5 before she got night trained...Our Dr. said no caffine after 12:00 then small drinks until 6 then after dinner just sips. He also said to set a timer for every hour and wake the child up to go potty until 1am. This was the ONLY thing that worked for the oldest. HOWEVER.. the middle one we just bought lots of sheets and wet pads (both are cheap at walmart) and quit giving her pull ups she was 2 when we got her trained

I have found that reducing liquids by 6 Pm if bedtime is 9, we usually have a dry morning. Also, I usually wake up around 1 or 2 AM. I wake up my child and walk with them to the bathroom asking them to get up and go pee. You may want to brimg it up with your Doc. It could be a problem with the muscle in the bladder that does not allow the child to feel the need to pee. If during the day they have the tendency to do the pee pee dance everytime they go, it could be the bladder muscle. good Luck!
