Don't think you really can train them at night time, they do it when they are ready, however I don't necessarily agree with keeping the disposibles going for ever, as sometimes they can be lazy (yes looking at you dd1) and can't be bothered to get up in the morning.

Ds is just 3, he's been out of night time nappies for a few months now, he is sometimes wet but only ever once a night so we just have a spare sheet etc under the top one.

Just go for it and see what happens. Make sure they go to the loo just before they hop into bed and see...

Agree with give it a try and see what happens. DD1 had 2 accidents a week for 3 weeks then never wet the bed again, she was about 3.5 years old. DD2 is 5 and still wets the bed 3 nights a week........ DS1 has just started daytime TT and is now getting up with a dry nappy most mornings and he is 2.8 years old. Each child is very different.

Give it a try but I think night dryness is mostly down to hormone production. Meaning you may be on a losing battle if he is not yet producing enough if the hormone. Ds1 was dry at night from 20 months, took me till 3 to get him dry in the day.
