dd1 is in yr 4 and finally got out of pnight time pull ups this summer.

ds1 is in yr 2 and is still wet at night.

dd2 has been dry day and night since 2.3.

she'll do it when she's ready, but at least half of her year will be in pull ups at night anyway, so don't stress. docs won't even talk to you about it until they are 7 as it is a non-issue.

DS2 is in year 2 and still in nightime nappies

(Ds2 has been dry at night since he was 3)

Nothing you can do about night training IME until their bodies are ready for it - so even if you were the worst Mummy in the world (which you are not of course)it wouldn't make any difference.

Who's going to know?

DS1 (Yr 1) just this week decided to try and be dry at night. So far 1 wet night this week

Everyone does it when they are ready.

DS1 was in pull ups until nearly 6yo.
Really not a problem

What was a bit more of a problem was when he took in his reward (lego, iirc) for show and tell and told everyone that he got it for being dry at night shock
Felt good that as parents we had made such a non-issue of it that he wasn't ashamed (and nor should be), but still could have been trouble for him. Luckily his teacher handled it really well, and the class were great too! smile

Blimey, this falls into the category of so common its not worth worrying about, I think.

My DD is rising 5 but has only been out of night nappies for about 6 months. From a quick chat with mates at the time we were moving out of them, she was in the majority.

My Ds was dry at day at 2.3 and dry at night at 2.4. It completely varies. Friends have a DS who was not dry until 8.5, and my nephew was 7.

But more importantly, no one needs to know unless you tell them.

Don't worry, my ds is 4.7 and still wet every night.

Dd was about 2 years younger when she was dry at night.

no biggie.

DD1 was in night nappies until she was 5.9. We went for it then and she has been fine ever since.

NotDoing - are you me? grin

DD started school this week, all her little friends are (allegedly) dry at night, and I did start to worry. Particularly as, sorry if TMI, her night nappies are enormous by the end of the night, so she is clearly very much not ready.

I've also found that pressure from MIL, has really helped (not) and that putting her in normal pants during the night does not work.

DS, by contrast, is just 3 and has almost dry nappies every morning.

At least, after this thread, I can relax too smile

DD2 took forever to come out of night time nappies - can't remember now how old she was, but she was definitely at school. She's 11 now, and it seems very long ago!

My DD1 (4.2) started school last week and is also still in pullups at night.

She is probably dry 4 out of 7 nights, but it varies drastically.

Im not worried. If I am honest, I still wet regularly at 10yrs.

She will be dry when she is ready to be!

NotDoing, DD1 still in nighttime pull-ups and started school last week (4.6). DD2 (2.6) came out of day nappies in July, and is now almost always dry at night. The whole idea just clicked for her. Biggest problem is that dd1 is very despondent that dd2 is dry and she is not sad.

Am I glad to have found this thread! My DS of 3.10 has nappies that are soaked zand soaked through by morning. DH suggested our son stay in nighttime pull ups to encourage him to try to be dry at night but all that happens is that he leaks every night and I am constantly changing sheets. I suggested we go back to the old nappies we had been using to which DH replied that we would be going backwards.

Easy for him to say when it is me changing and washing linen!

Full absorbency usual nappies will be on next week's shopping list (and apologies for not using Real Nappies...)

My DD wasn't dry at night till she was 8. The medical types seem to deem it quite normal up to 7, at which age you can (or should be able to) get a referral to a specialist nurse (there is a term which I've already forgotten).

So... try again if she wants sometime, maybe in the hols, but don't stress about it.

Hulababy Tue 09-Sep-08 19:47:13

Don't worry about it. It will happen eventually.

DD is 6 and has only been consitently dry at night in the last few months, ad still has the odd accident, She was dry in the day at 24 months. DD was really keen to be dry at night so it wasn't laziness or for want of trying on her part.

my dd 5.7 and still wet at night was dry for 6 months at 3 but reverted back and the only other dry time we have had is last yr summer hols where she was dry for whole summer as soon as she went back to school she was wet again. ds on the other hand who is 4.6yr has been dry at night for nearly two years.

Thing is think of it this way not many are in nappies at 18 grin

my ds1 was still - brace yourself - doing poos in a nappy at night when he first went to school at the tender age of just turned four. he is now just turned 5 and in year one and doesnt use nappies AT ALL. He just suddenly "got" using the loo for a number 2 (was a huge fear he had to get over) and as time went on got dryer for more and more nights. I to had pressure to get him to conform but he wasnt ready - and when he was ready i didnt have any problems - or wet beds!!
