We brought our son to the toilet in the night till he was 10 or so. He would still have every now and then an accident anyway, but I didn’t make a lot of fuss about it. Just clean the bed, put it in the washing machine and sleep.
I now have a 10 year old girl in foster care, who was using pull ups when she came to us. I got her out her pull ups and started waking her up in the night for a toilet visit. In the meantime we started working on her bladder control during the day. Increased her fluids, encouraged to go to toilet on time, started osmolax to soften her stools, and encouraged her to lay down and feel her full bladder before she goes to the toilet to increase her brain-bladder senses. Healthy toilet habits are very important before you even think about alarm training.
