Well Savannah has been wearing no diaper for around two weeks, one all day & going everytime on her own. I wanna know when I should try her all night without a diaper? We still put her on one & she drinks a cup of milk or juice while falling asleep.

Just put her in underwear, a place a towel or something under her. Make sure she goes potty before going to bed and not alot of fluids. You have to give her a shot, what's the worst that could happen. You clean a mess up. It's worth it trust me. She might surprise you.

When I thought my kids were ready I would give them a shower or bath dry them off and put them to bed without a diaper or undies or anything under them.

Does she wake up with a dry diaper. Once my daughter was doing that for about a week, I put her in underwear. She never had accidents at night and will wake up if she needs to go potty.

Hi! My duaghter is 3 1/2 and has been fully potty trained for over a yr now. I recommend nothing to drink about 1/2 an hour to an hour before she goes to bed. If she wants something, just allow her to have a sip of water. And always make sure she goes potty before bed....wheather she wants to or not. Tell her to atleast try! I still use this method and it works everytime! At first, she may have a few accidents, let her know that it's ok. She should stay dry soon enough, because they don't like to be wet.

I agree with Stephanie. This is how I did it with my daughter, who is now turning 3 next month and has been potty trained for about 10 months now. The only thing I would add along with the limit the liquid intake is to have your daughter go to the bathroom right before bed. When I was at this stage with my daughter, on the nights I forgot to have her go to the bathroom was the nights she would wake up in the middle of the night with a wet bed. :-) Try not to forget that one. ;-)

Hi!! I'm at this stage too. I don't really recommend letting her fall asleep with something to drink. It's not good for her teeth. What I do is limit my daughter's liquid intake in the evening. When she starts waking up in the morning with a dry diaper consecutively I will try letting her sleep in her underwear. I am doing this now with nap time and it is going well. Just make sure you have a couple sets of sheets and mattress protectors! Hope this helps and good luck. It takes awhile for them to be able to stay dry all night.
