Getting rid of night time nappies

When do you think is the right time to do this? My dd is 2.3 and has been fully potty trained through the day for a couple of months now. She still wears nappies at night but has been waking up dry quite often lately. Is it worth trying her without nappies at bedtime or should I leave her for a bit bearing in mind that her nappy isn't dry every morning (I'd say she's dry 5 mornings out of 7).

I can't remember what I did with my older children and I'm surprised dd seems to be managing dry nights so early - one of my elder ones wasn't reliably dry overnight until she was 9. Is it worth a shot or should I leave it until she is completely dry every morning for a few weeks? What would you do in this situation?

Get a mattress protector and give it a go. That's what I did...my younger DD was the same as yours...it meant that i had bedding to wash once or twice a week but it saved on nappies!

I'd give it a go , my dd was dry day and night at two

My boys wore pull ups to bed until they were 6!

Do it and keep the habit of being dry, up. If you keep her in night time nappies she may begin/continue to rely on it.

Well last night was the first night and it was a success! No wet bed, I'm so pleased.

Being dry at night is about hormone production so not something your child can control. We left DD in nappies overnight until she was reliably dry.
