My 4.5 year old has been out of night nappies for a couple of months - it's not been dead perfect; we've had a wet bed once every 10 days/fortnight, but certainly been good enough for me not to worry about it.
But he started school last week and since then it's been a disaster with a lot of wet nights. And he wet twice last night.
He is absolutely adamant that he does not want to go back in to nappies. So do I ride it out, and wait for it to settle down or do I say tough, and put him back in to nappies until he's more reliably dry?? My inclination is to get the nappies back on, but there will be a fight every night over it... Thoughts please!
I'd say ride it out (but put the waterproof sheets over his normal sheets so you can change them quickly) or try dry nite pj bottoms (less nappy like so he may tolerate them)- he's shattered after school and probably just too tired to get up to go the loo. In a month or so he should have adjusted.
Got the bed protector, so perhaps I just go back to being extra careful about drinks after 5.30pm and last, last wees and be patient. I guess I don't want to make him feel like a 'baby' when I'm expecting him to live up to the new challenges of big school. Will check out the dry nites too.
