i have stopped any drinks after 8pm, but he still seems to pee just a little in his diaper. How do i get him out of a diaper? Do i need to go earlier with stopping drinks? he cries for a drink and on occasion i have broke and given him a drink. I dont know what else to do. although i have told him he will be out of a diaper by the time he turns 4(in a few days). i just hate the smell of pee when hes peed in his underwear or in his bed. his brother is 5 and had no problem transitioning over. i dont remember how i did that either.

any comments or suggestions would be great!

My son peed the bed every night until he was 6.5 only because I decided to get the pee pee alarm. Took 2 weeks and now he wakes up when he has the urge. I also suggest no liquids 2 hours before bedtime in addition to the alarm.

It's normal. Every child is different in how their bladders develop. I have two boys ages 3 and 5 and they both still wear diapers at night. My 5 year old has some nights where he is close to dry, but other nights where the diaper couldn't be any fuller. Some children can take until age 8 to be fully trained at night.

every child is different and his bladder may not have developed enough to handle the full night, my son was 6 before he stopped wearing a pull up to bed his doctor said it was normal and to not make a big deal out of it.

Put him pull ups during nights. My son who is 6 now potty trained when he was 1 yr. still nights he used wear pull ups till he was 4 yrs. make him go to pee when he is about to sleep. I know they are cranky that time bcse they r too sleepy. But it helps.
