Quoting Stacey:

Im sorry but I'm stuck at "recently took him off his bottle" He's 3? Honestly if he's had that bottle this long, he's still in baby mood, not complete toddler zone yet....I'm sorry, but was there a reason for bottling him this long? It's just so bad for them, sucking on it, Okay I am sorry, Maybe between his last drink time n bedtime encourage him to use the restroom often, u might want to encourage him once he is in bed to get out n go use the bathroom, so he gets the idea thats what we do now...if tryin that u could set bedtime a lil earlier if bedtime is a time set in stone....Maybe he just doesn't realize that he needs to get up, or keep a potty chair in his room at night, so that he doesn't have to leave his bedroom....


Ceva wasn't asking if you agreed with the fact that her son just got done with a bottle, she was asking for tips on getting him to stop bed wetting. just because it is something that you wouldn't do doesn't mean that she deserves judgement for it in a totally unrelated post.



 



as for the bed wetting, i've been trying to night train my 17 month old daughter too (she's been 100% day trained for a month now) and i've found that if i put her on the potty when i go to bed, even if she's not fully awake, it seems to help. also, make sure that the bathroom has a night light in it so if he wakes up to go himself, he doesn't get scared in the dark. i have heard of people that set potty alarms to make sure they're getting their kids up every 3 hours and making the child be fully awake so they're aware that they need to go potty at night. i haven't tried this yet b/c my daughter is too little to get up on the potty herself yet but i have heard that it works really well.

Anyway thankx for your response but please keep your judgment to yourself!! This website is to compare tips with other mothers not judge.

I actually lucked out on this one. My daughter was night trained BEFORE she was day trained. I dont know how much you give him to drink thru the day, but maybe its too much??? I usually give my kids 2-3 glasses of milk a juice box, and 2 glasses of water daily NO drinks after supper (around 5:30 or so). If they are really asking and are thirsty they are offered water. If they refuse, I know they werent that thirsty. If they accept, I know they must have needed the drink. Definitely NOTHING past 6 or 6:15. Good luck.
