Night time training
12

mamablondie2 · 06/06/2020 17:27

Hi my not quite 2 year old is now completely toilet trained during the day including her nap time. I was just wondering whether to address night time yet or leave it a while? And how do you go about it? Do they just eventually stop weeing at night like she did with naps?

I’m due a new baby in a few months so wondering do I just leave it for a good bit longer or do it now before baby comes

Thanks!

You can't train at night.They are trained when their nappy is dry in the morning. Once that happens for a few nights... no more nappies.There is little correlation between early daytime dryness and being dry at night.

Thanks! Is there a timeframe when this usually happens? That’s what happened with naps a few days ago she started waking up dry and now no nappy.

It sounds as if she is on the way. Some are very quick and can let you know by removing their own nappy but others take years ( and years ) . Just watch in the mornings and once she has had a few dry days in a row... nappy off. There is no benefit to anyone in all being up with the wet bed so there is no point in pushing the timetable.

Honestly just wait until it's happened consistently and then stop with the overnight pull-ups/ nappies. There no telling when.

@AnnaSW1 is there any difference between nappies and pull ups for overnight? Will pull ups help? Thanks!! X

Hi OP,
Just wondering how you got to no nappies at nap time and also how do you manage going out and about for walks? My DS is 22 months and does all his wees in the potty at home, naps he still wears a nappy and for walks I've not been brave enough to go nappy free! Any advice would be amazing thank you :)

I stopped day time nappies all at once. One day when I thought they were ready, which your little boy seems to be , they wore pants and I didn't put a daytime nappy ( no pull ups then) on again. DD wasn't ready and we reverted to nappies for a few months but the boys had very few accidents.

Being dry at night can take a wide variety of different times.

With ds1 he was 10yrs old (after support from a specialist nurse, medication and an alarm)

With ds2 he was 3yrs old, we started toilet training on the Monday he was dry night and day by the Friday!

With ds3 he was 8yrs old (we just went straight for the alarm as we knew all the advice!)
