My ds is 3.8 and is showing no sign of being ready of coming off his night nappies. He has been trained day time for a year and that was a struggle.
Iam not overly concerned but it seems that most of the other kids we know were dry at night not long after daytime some as early as 15-18 months.
We are still getting significantly wet nappies in morning (PULL UPS) even though he's encouraged gently to use toilet.
The 1st thing he does in morning is take off nappy and do toilet in loo.
Iam just posting to see roughly when others children were night dry to reassure myself (and shut the odd snidey comment up)
DS1 was 7.5. I think DS2 was 3.(I was very impressed he was so young) DD didn't want to wear pull ups tonight (although I insisted). She's been out of nappies for 1 week and is almost 2.She was dry last night. I would imagine 4 is 'normal'
Has nothing to do with DD's intelligence. She is, according to her teacher, a very bright and alrt youn girl who is making great pregress at school. She was just unable to control her bladder when she was asleep. I think the non-water liquids irrated her bladder too much.
My DS1 is 8.5 and has been dry for significant periods lately (with odd wetting incidents in between) with the aid of a bed-wetting alarm. DS2 is 5 and showing absolutely no signs of being dry.
Sympathies, especially dealing with the comments of others, I find/found the comments of other parents on this subject infuriating at times. TBH, as time went on I tried not to mention that DS1 was still wet at night, unless I was speaking to someone I knew really well and was pretty sure what their reaction would be.
Also what dd did firstly was become aware that she was wetting and would take the nappy off in the morning. The next stage was becoming aware at night and she would take the wet nappy off and get back into bed but then wet the bed. Now she manages to use the potty/toilet in the night and has asked to be nappy free.
It is nobody elses buisness whether your child is dry at night or not. As long as you have a waterproof sheet on the bed, and make sure your DS goes for a wee last thing at night, just change any wet sheets without saying anything to him, when/ if you do take him out of pull ups.. You may get to the point where you ask him not to wee in the bed (amazingly this can work), but 3.8 is still very young. You may find, in the future, that your DS is weeing in pull ups, first thing in the morning, before he's properly awake, if he's a heavy sleeper. DS2 who was 'dry' at 3, still comes into our bed and wees in it, rather than finding to the loo! Please don't worry about keeping your DS in pull ups, as long as he's happy to wear them.
