Does this count as being dry at night?

DD is 4 and after being dry for 75% of the time, we stopped using pull ups about a week a go. She has wet the bed just once at about 3 in the morning and the only thing different that evening was that we had dinner out and she had juice to drink rather than the usual water we have at home.

The thing is that she doesn't seem to need a wee when she wakes in the morning, so I'm confused as to whether she is officially dry at night or we've just been lucky.

Can anyone help??

Does it really matter?

I understand that they can't be dry unless they produce a hormone and i cant tell if DD does or not and therefore don't know i we're going to end up bck in pull ups. Just curious to see if anyone has had this before...

Cut the juice, just water after tea, potty in her room...she's almost there. Sometimes they are so tired they don't care! My DD was dry at night about a week after dry during the day. She was literally just two. DS was four before he was dry at night but dry during the day at two as well. I just didn't persevere with DS. That's not true I tried but he weed every night 2 or 3 times and didn't care. She does! If she's dry a few nights a week she's almost there. Pop a potty next to her bed. Girls are great they just click a bit quicker than boys. Pelvic floor??

but does the fact that she doesn't need a wee when she wakes in the morning mean that actually she's not holding it in?

Ah my dd does this. About 20 mins after she wakes she announces she needs a wee! So most nights goes to bed at 6pm, wakes at 6.30 but doesn't wee until 7ish or before. Sounds about right. I leave the pot in her room because sometimes she does wake up and go. She knows it's there. I really think that female physiology plays a big part.

The hormones do play a part. But don't boys sleep the sleep of the dead? Nothing rouses DS. Although now at 5 I am so glad I just ditched the pull ups and went for it!
