Let him. It won't kill him. He is not ready to go without, and there is no need to force it.

Teresa has a point. Is he using it or just wanting to wear it? Luckily, my son wasn't attached to his diapers or his pullups so once he went for like a week of waking up dry, I'd immediately take it off of him and put him in underwear. We had a few accidents in his underwear but not nearly as many as I had expected. Once he went about two weeks waking up dry, I tossed whatever pullups we had left. Good luck Momma :)

Does he USE the diaper... or just want to wear it?

My girls used pull ups at night time until they were 4.5. They needed them as they still had occasional wet beds up til 8.5 (though VERY rare at that age). Going w/out the pull ups at night was their decision and we started off having about one wet bed a week for the first couple of months.

My son, on the other hand, was fully day and night trained by 2.75 years old. He had a strong attachment to his diapers though. He was potty trained for a month before I could convince him to wear underwear during the day. He wore diapers at night until we ran out (just after his 3rd bday) cuz I refused to buy new diapers for a fully potty trained kid. lol He whined for a diaper for 15 minutes that first night that we had none... It's been almost a year and he's only ever had one wet bed.

Which ever of these stories your child fits in most would determine how I would handle it. :)

My boys are 3 and 5 and they rarely nap, but when they do they stay dry during that time. At night, they are still in diapers. It's normal. Some kids bladders take longer to get stronger. I have heard that some kids still wet at night at the age of 8.

Wait until they stop being wet when he gets up. You can not force bladder maturity, which is what it takes to become night dry. If you try to take them away before he is ready, he will just feel discouraged.
