My little girl was day-trained for quite some time before we could night-train her. I got sick of waiting for her night habits to catch up so I gave them a helping hand. I decreased her water intake before bed to about 1 cup. Then every time I put the nappy on I'd make a remark about nappies. Usually, "Gee when ur a big girl we can throw these stinky, smelly things away" and "did you know when you stop doing wees when you're sleeping you won't have to wear nappies anymore". AFter a few weeks of the 'mind games' she almost had stopped. After a dry night I would jump around and in my most excited voice would let her know how proud I was of her etc. In all I think it took about a month. I tried to make every comment I made nice and not degrading and it worked so I am stoked. I think since then she has had about 12 accidents, and she is 3 1/2 now so that's pretty ood going I think. They can't just stop but I think if you plant the seed into their minds and harp on it (nicely of course) it just works. Good luck
