DD 3.5 went dry by herself when we potty trained a few months ago. However in the past few weeks she has started to wet the bed a little more - I think it's been 3 times in the past week/10 days.
Now I suspect it's because she wants to drink loads right before bed. I'm not keen on limiting her fluid intake because I don't really know how much she's drinking during the day at nursery.
Any advice on what would be the best thing to do at the moment? Do we put her back in pull-ups for night? I'm happy to do that, I couldn't really care less about what age she stops pull ups at night, but I don't want to confuse her on the issue. Or do I try getting her out of bed to wee when we go to bed later?
Are there any changes ocurring in her life? I'd just put her in pull ups, don't tell her off, just explain why you're doing it, calmly. Her bladder should be strong enough to get her through the night if she's managed it before.
Yes, she has just started at a new nursery which is much more "help yourself" for water, and I suspect at the moment she isn't helping herself, and so is then drinking gallons in the evening to make up for it! I agree her bladder is strong enough, but she's obviously drinking a huge amount before bed. And she's such a good and deep sleeper the need to go clearly isn't waking her.
Thanks - I suspected going back to pull-ups would be better given we've had three accidents in a short period of time plus I'm used to getting my uninterrupted sleep , I just wanted to check more experienced people wouldn't see as a step back or anything.
At that age girls understand clearly if you explain it her that it's just for a while. It sounds like the nursery is affecting her .I always used to put my mindees and dcs in nappies when we went out even while potty training; they understood the reasons! never any regressing!
