3.5 year old not dry at night

My 3.5 year little girl has been toilet trained in the day for about a year now, and apart from the occasional accident maybe once a week at nursery she is doing great. She has a step and toilet seat and can take herself for a wee independently and is mastering her own personal care.
However...she still wears a pull up at night and it is completely soaked in the morning so clearly no where near being 'dry at night'. I don't restrict juice...should I? Her last drink will be about 5pm with her tea...and bed at 7pm.
Should I be concerned? My mum is suggesting lifting her at 10pm when we go to bed but I've heard mixed reviews on this one...but maybe worth a go? Another suggestion is to loose the pull ups and after a few accidents she will get the idea?!...not too keen on that one I must say 😂 Potty in her room (even tho she uses toilet 100% of the time, don't even have potty now!) x

No not at all. You can't train them to be dry at night it's hormone related and not an issue at all until age 7. Don't bother lifting either ime it trains them to wee in their sleep.

Dts were dry daytime at age 3, one at. Ugly at 4 and the other at 5.

My daughter came down one night aged five after being tucked up, still wasn't reliantly dry in the day, asking not to wear a nappy. A put a plastic sheet on her bed and tucked her back up. Had two accidents in the following two weeks but then reliably dry after that. I wouldn't worry, it'll happen when they are ready

It's hormone related. You can't train it. She is far too young to worry about this.

Not unusual at all. Please don't worry, there are lots of children not dry at night at that age.

That's perfectly acceptable OP.

I know plenty of children who aren't dry at night at 3.5, mine included.
