Should I be concerned?

I've just been reading a different very old thread and something popped up that's made me wonder....

My ds is 4 (turned a few weeks ago) and is not yet dry at night. He has been dry during the day since just before 2 but we just cannot get him dry at night.

I take him to the toilet at about 10pm, he will normally have a big wee, but is always wet when he gets up. I limit how much he drinks past 3pm but it doesn't seem to make any difference. Until I saw the other thread it hadn't bothered me but now I'm wondering if I should be doing more to get him dry?

I'm sure it's much too soon to worry

Its too soon to worry, however if you are lifting him at 10pm that won't help either in the long term as effectively you are assisting him to wee whilst asleep, presumably you would like him to wake and take himself to the toilet in the night. You can try getting him to wee an hour before bed, then again at bedtime and removing all dark drinks from his diet, such as blackcurrant / summer fruit squash, tea , hot choc. Stop bedtime drinks for the time being. Good luck and I hope this helps
