I think DD(2.8) might be showing signs of starting to be ready to 'night train'! I really didn't want to train her at night, I was happy leaving her in nappies until she was dry on her own. (I was still in nappies at night at nearly 5) BUT she is waking 1 or 2 times in the night and shouting that she needs to go for a wee & won't do it in her nappy. We put her in Pull-ups last night from the beginning of the night (as it's easier when half asleep to get them on & off) & it was the first time in 2 weeks she slept right through. Hmm Consequently she soaked the pull ups & her pyjamas & sheet were damp this morning!

SO should I put her back in nappies & leave a stack of pull-ups in the bathroom. Or should I lift her when I go to bed & see if she'll go? She will wee in her nappy when asleep, unless she has woken for a wee.

She is dry in the daytime (bar the now very occasional accident). I know she is still quite young to be dry at night/night trained. Just not sure what to do.

FWIW Our only toilet is downstairs & she won't go in the potty (upstairs) if she asks to go. Am hoping that if I lift her I can get her to go on the potty rather than take her downstairs.

Hmm, not much advice. My DD is same age and we thought she might be ready because she has a tendency to get up, take her nappy off, go for a wee and then go back to sleep (she does that on her own so doesn't call for us Hmm). We tried not putting a nappy on at all for a while but the bed was damp in the mornings most nights so now we just put on a nappy at bedtime and then leave her to it. The nights that she takes her nappy off herself when she goes for a wee she tends to be dry otherwise she takes her nappy off first thing to use the toilet.

Not much use really, but it is a dilemma, I'm not sure how to proceed at all. I think we're going to carry on as we are, although I like the idea of leaving pullups out for her if she wants them.
