Trying to get her dry at night
3

Sussexbysea · 16/04/2020 16:07

My 3 year old doesn’t want to wear nappies at bedtime. We have been following her lead but she’s wetting herself about 3am. Plenty of wees before bed and little fluids too.

Any hints or tips?

My LG is 3 as well and just started staying dry at night. She is very keen on going nappy free at bed time as well. I've told her if she can go a week with dry nappies, she wont have to wear them at night. This seems to have stopped it turning into a battle!

I think staying dry at night is hormonal so not very much that can help. Some people find that a dream wee helps so could be worth a try?

It's pretty much hormonal so she won't til she can iyswim.

Just say "I know you don't want a nappy but your wee wees still like to come in the night time so we have to wait til they have decided to stop"

Put a potty in her room and swap the nappies to pull ups. Then if she wakes and needs, she can have herself a wee in the potty.

Dc1 (girl) wasn't dry through til 5. Dc2 (boy) was dry at night before he was daytime trained.

Thanks both.

She was in pull ups before. We’re on night 4 tonight, should I carry on and last nights accident was smaller and later in her sleep?
