hello, my daughter has been potty trained since she was 1yr.. What i did with her was i started using a pull up at night i made sure she went potty before she went to bed everynight, She i think only wet the bed 2 times when she was in the pull up. Then when she hadnt wet the bed in about 2 weeks i took the pull up off, and i think she only wet the bed once. Just make sure you take him potty before he goes to bed everynight.

At night, I put them in pull ups. Make sure you don't give him anything to drink and hour before bed time and take him to the potty before bed (this actually helps set a night time routine that will help prevent accidents when he gets older, too). You know he's ready to come out of pull ups at night when you can go two or weeks without having a wet pull up in the morning. Also, make sure that you take him to the bathroom first thing in the morning when he wakes up. That way he doesn't make it all the way through the night without an accident only to have one first thing in the morning. Happy training. HTH

I used pullups at night, and you just have to remember to have them go to the bathroom right before. I also woke my daughter up before i went to bed to have her go again once she was wearing underwear to bed and it actually doesnt interupt them as much as you think. Since they are already in such a deep sleep, after a quick trip to the potty (i leave the lights dim as to not wake her too much) they go right back to sleep. Sometimes my daughter hardly opened her eyes! But it kept the sheets dry!
