How long between dry daytimes to dry nighttimes?

DS has nailed daytime training at 2yrs2months. He went straight to toilet seat so he requires assistance to get up so not completely independent yet but few accidents. Remaining accidents are a tiny wet patch followed by “mummy I need a wee.... NOW”

He’s been in a nappy for nap time and bed time. He rarely poos on toilet and saves it for the morning while nappy is still on.

We aren’t in a rush to move on to night time training yet but I was wondering how long it generally takes from nailing daytimes to nailing nightimes? And what are the signs and steps?

The sign is waking up with a dry nappy.

My DD trained at 22mo and after a couple of weeks, her nap nappy was reliably dry so we stopped. Made sure she had a wee before she went to sleep and she was fine. We did the same with nights and within a couple of months, she'd had a dry nappy every morning for a couple of weeks so stopped the night nappy.

How long is a piece of string? Both mine were dry at night within days of being dry in the day. Some children are still in pull ups at 5/6/7. My understanding is that it’s down to hormone production.

One D.C. dry during the day around 2, still not dry at night at nearly 6. The other one, dry during the day at two and a half, and dry at night at exactly the same time.

You don’t train night time dryness
As PP said, it’s all down to a hormone

I think it varies widely.
DD was dry day and night within 4 days of startingpotty training at 2.5.
My friends DD isn't reliably dry at night now at 5.
Like pp say it's a hormone that determines it.

Both mine but dry at night within a week of being dry during the day - boys aged 2.5 and 2. But from friends I know it is very variable.

So Ds1 took 7 years (dry at night at about 10yrs after specialist input and hard work), ds2 took 5 days (started training on a Monday dry day and night by the Friday), ds3 is inconsistently dry and he is 8 years.

It is all to do with hormone production, but can be made worse by being a very heavy sleeper, not drinking enough in the day, drinking too much close to bedtime, and drinking black currant squash.

Bedtime wetness is considered normal until about 8yrs old unfortunately just not talked about much.

Oh yes you can’t train nighttime dryness in the same way just get into good habits and wait.

The charity ERIC is excellent for any information you might need

Thanks for the input and info on hormones and “not training” nighttimes. Seems clear to me to just wait until dry nappies appear?
