Default Dry at night??

Hi ladies,

A bit of advice needed. Poppy has been dry in the day for a long while now but I'm trying to get her dry at night. The problem is she doesn't seem to be getting it. We've been trying for the past 6 weeks and she is probably only dry about 3 or 4 nights of the week and even then I'm having to lift her in the night (which I never did with Ruby) I've just gone to check on her and she's wet again, so another night of stripping her down, stripping the bed etc.

I'm really baffled. I don't know whether to persevere or leave it for a while and try again.

I never had this with Ruby - at 2 years 10 months she said she was a big girl and refused to wear a nappy day or night and has been dry ever since; without even a wet bed!

Poppy is 3 years 5 months.

What would you do? How have you done it with your little ones?

Georgia took a long time to get dry in the day (she was nearly 4 half) and night time has only been about 2 months now (she was 5 in june) but she still has bad spells. HV told me it can take up to when they are 8 yrs old to get the hang of it.

I know how frustrating it is changing sheets every night. I think I would put her back in nappies for a while. I've just trained Theo in the day this week (he is just 3) and he done it in 2 days. I was dreading doing it after Georgia. Not tried at night yet might try after xmas. xx

Lol, I was thinking I'd have an easy ride cos Ruby was so easy! Just goes to show they are all different and do things completely differently even if the approach was the same.

Thanks for the reply x

It's never easy second time round is it! We're the same, Logan was dry day & night just after his third birthday but we still haven't managed to get Callum out of nappies even during the day yet. So I'm now changing big toddler size nappies as well as newborn! We thought that when the new baby came it would make him want to do it but he just doesn't seem to understand!

my niece is just 8 and has only been dry at night for about 6 months, she ended up seeing a nurse at the local childrens centre with regards to bed wetting etc basically she wasn't drinking enough in the day so she was just emptying what was in her bladder during the night. Not sure if this might help with Poppy and upping her fluids??? good luck lovely x

Give her time and she will get there hon, Finn was like your Ruby, he was dry at night as soon as he was dry in day at 2yr 6mnth but I know friends little ones have taken longer.
Is it because she's drinking more in the hot weather perhaps!
She'll get there and your doing all the right things! X

Freddie is still not dry at night, he's been dry i the day since 2 3/4 but hes wet every night still. he drinks gallons during the day, so don't think its that. have tried lifting etc, but didnt really work for us, it was very hard to wake him & even if he went on the loo, he was still wet the following morning. not too worried at the moment, but might see the Dr once he's turned 6.

Hi Jewel
I know this an old thread but as I have only just joined I thought I would tell you what I do with my daughter. I am just as baffled about all this staying dry at night stuff too. My daughter was potty trained at 2 and a half and has never looked back, at about 3 she asked to not have a nappy to sleep in and she was brilliant, she would even wake me at night if she needed the toilet. However, since we have moved house she has regressed a little and now the only way to ensure a dry bed is that I get her to go to the toilet immediately before going to bed and then about 2 hours after she has gone to bed (around the time I'm off to bed) I wake her up and take her to the toilet, she always goes and then she's dry until the morning.
I don't know if this is a good routine to keep to or for how long it will be before she learns to wake up herself but for now it gives her confidence with having a dry bed and me a break from all that washing and cleaning!!
Hope this can help you or perhaps if anyone else has any tips on how to get children to learn to wake themselves, any advice welcomed.

I would leave it for a while and take Poppy's lead on this.

Good luck.

Freddie is still not dry at night & never has been, he's 6 1/2 now. we have attended the dry night clinic with the HV & he has a schedule now for drinks & wees. have been doing it for a month, but no improvement at all. its called PNE. he is a heavy sleeper so doesn't even know hes going or needs to go. seeing hv again in amonth to discuss next course of action, maybe an alarm that alerts them to wee, or possibly some meds to help concentrate the wee at night (this is what is not happening). dr/hv wont give any treatment until they are at least 6 as in some kids the brain/bladder takes longer to develop the skill/capacity to reduce wee production at night time. there is a good website called ERIC that has lots of advice etc.
