We limit his water intake to stop an hour before sleep time and visit to the loo before bed. Almost every night, he wets his nappy pants. Any tips to share your experience? How to toilet train a toddler for night?

  • Yes we reduced liquid intake late arvo/evening as well and picked my son up to go to the toilet when we went to bed. He still would have every now and then an accident till he was 11yrs or so and I didn’t make a big deal of it. Just gave him a clean bed and popped the sheets in the washing machine. We didn’t use pull ups because it will not train your child, just protect it.
    However my nearly 6yr old has Down syndrome and she isn’t toilet trained and I use nappies and pull ups for her.

  • I was told to not worry about toilet training of a night til the child was having regular dry nappies. This worked with my first. With my second, she was over 4 and I just thought that’s it, no more nappies! As soon as I left the nappy off, she stopped wetting in her bed.

  • I’ve heard that some kids just take a long time to be dry overnight. Getting him to do a “dream wee” might help as outlined below. We did that for a bit too.

  • yeah you can try the nappies at night time and mine “dried” up in their own time, a few months later once they were into the swing of going to the toilet. no need to stress or rush, it will be fine.

  • Thanks MOM56312 & DBHALL82 for sharing your advice which I appreciate and will try that for sure.

  • my son wet the bed at night till he was 6 years old. That was till as i went to bed at 10.30 pm to 11 pm. I started to pick him up and sit him on the toilet still while half asleep. i didnt turn the light on in the bedroom or the toilet but had one on in the other room so i could see what was happening. When he had finished i pulled up him pants and carried him back to bed. He would roll over and go back to sleep in seconds if its done gentlely it became routine for over a year.He now sleeps through and we dont need to limit what he drinks and when anymore.

    Also be sure thats his bits are facing downwards in the nappy pants as my sons both leaked when it wasnt.



  • No tips as I haven’t done it yet but I would put down a waterproof sheet and just put them in the bed and if they wet it they will hate the feeling and then you can explain about how you need to go to the toilet before bed
