She is fine using the toilet during the day and has done so for 6 months but so far we have had no luck during the night. Now she just wees and sleeps in it and we don't find out until when she wakes up in the morning, any suggestions on how to get her to use the toilet during the night. Thanks

My daughter had the same problem. Put a calender in her room and when she is dry get some stickers that she likes and put it on the days that she is dry. This is fun and she will be able to see her progress. Make a big deal if she goes more than 1 day in a row. Hopefully this will help along with the other suggestions from other moms

my daughter was potty trained at 2.5 in the day, she is now 4.5 and is just finally trained at night....what has worked for us is no drinks after dinner time (ok to have a couple sips of water before bed) ...and i wake her up once before i go to bed so she can go....she hasnt wet the bed in almost 2 months....

Don't give her anything to drink 1 hour before bed and nothing with sugar 2 hours before bed. Make sure she is empting her bladder before bed time as well.No sippy or bottle to sleep with it worked for my son

Our daughter turned 3 in June, and she has done really well at night. We always made sure she didn't have anything to drink about 30 minutes to an hour before bed, and she always goes potty right before she gets in bed. She has done really well with it.

I had the same problem because my daughter sleeps so hard at night time. For a while I had to get up once a night and take her to the bathroom. I also quit giving her anything to drink( or just a sip or two) about two hours before bed. Shortly after my daughter decided she could do it herself. We also made sure she went potty right before we put her in bed whether she said she needed to go or not. We also made a HUGE deal out of it if she didn't wet the bed.
