Potty training at night

My daughter has been fully potty trained during the day since the end of May. However, at night is a different thing. I tried just using panties so she would know when she wet the bed. She didn't like it but she keeps doing it. So I have tried several types of pull ups that let her know when she goes. This is still not working. Any suggestions on getting my daughter potty trained at night?

I am in the same bat, but my son has been potty trained for over a year!!! He has been in night pull-ups since then and is still soaked in the morning! I try restricting liquids int eh evening, but nothing seems to help. I was told to just wait until he is dry on his own and then you will know it is time to go without the diaper:)

Night time potty training is the hardest. The little ones don't wake up enough to go potty during the night. They don't pe the bed on purpose. The best thing is just to use diapers or pull ups and wait until she is staying dry on her own at night then try panties again. Limiting liquids after supper helps too. Make sure she goes potty last thing right before she crawls into bed. My oldest son was night time trained about 4-5 months after he was daytime trained. My second son wasn't night time trained until he was 6, even after that he still had occasional accidents. When I talked to his doc about it the doc said not to worry about it until the child was at least 6. If they're still having problems after 6 then they can give meds or other things to try to help. Sorry I don't have better news, but I think patience is the only answer here.
