I read somewhere, that if a child can stay dry for 2 weeks, it's safe to ditch the pullups. My girl (also 2 years) is still wearing hers - whe havent reach dry nights for 14 days straight . . . hopefully soon.

Just go cold Turkey with the pull ups at night! Go to the store buy a lot of underware a couple plastic sheets for the matress and go for it. You gotta start somewhere. Cut back on liquid to close to bedtime. As far as getting her to sleep in her own bed. I have been there done that one myself. Trying putting her toddler bed at the foot of your bed for awhile.

Then start giving her quiet time in her bed in her own room during the day. And just gradually get her to start spending more time in her room. It will happen! Good Luck!!
