Toilet training question

May 3rd, 2013, 20:47 PM   #1
 
I wondered if anyone had problems with their lo being dry during the night..my lg has been out of nappies completely during the day for atleast 2 months but was still having a bottle before bed so was putting a nappy on her..with my oldest lg I waited until she was dry for a full week before using no nappy which didn't take long at all..my youngest has been doing very well but the most consecutive dry nights have been 5 days but I have stopped her bottles and I'm sure she is only doing it because she knows she has a nappy on..so tonight I have put her to bed without one on..do you think this is the way forward? How did other mummies cope with night time toilet training? X

Those bed pad things are invaluable! They have saved more mattresses than I can count. I'd use one of those (under your bottom sheet) for nappy free nights x

I use those disposable ones too, it's easy to just throw a new one on each time x

I know you posted this a while ago now so hopefully you've got it sorted but just wanted to say if you're still struggling it was about a year between my little boy being dry in the day and being dry at night. I was getting a bit concerned but after reading around a bit apparently nighttime dryness is a developmental milestone and won't happen until something has developed in their brain that alerts them to wake when they need the toilet, can't remember the exact ins and outs of it all but that's the gist of it! With my son we tried a couple of times, at his request, to go without nappies at night and it didn't work out because he wasn't quite ready. We gave him the choice of whether he wanted to keep trying or not but he hated waking up wet so chose to go back to nappies again both times. Then the third time we tried (which was only a couple of weeks after the second time) he suddenly got it has been dry at night for a few weeks now. Xxx
