Overnight Toilet Training
Posted 26 October 2010 - 10:02 AM
Brandon has been toilet trained for several years now but is still wearing a nappy to bed overnight.
With him starting school next year we wanted him to be fully toilet trained.
What did you all do to teach them to wake up and go to the toilet during the night? It was suggested to us to wake him up during the night and sit him on the toilet then put him back to bed but this just isn't working for us.
Any better ideas?

A friend of mine had real problems with her older son. So much so that she went to a child incontience specialist who told her not to wake him at night as it isn't teaching him anything just making him more tired. The specialist said that it isn't really a problem until 7ish and it is quite common till then. She had to teach him to hold on for longer during the day, so when he felt the need to go he would then put 10 minutes on the microwave timer and not go till the alarm sounded. Apparently it has worked well.

Does he want to ditch the nappies? Rosie was keen to at about 3.5 so I did. She wet the bed every night for 2 weeks, a couple of times per week for the next 2 weeks, then she was dry and has been ever since. I let her choose every night what she wanted to do and she always chose undies. She had never had a dry nappy in the morning prior to that.

We have just moved house so thought we would tackle that once we had settled in here.
The week before her bday I forgot to put a nappy on her. she was so excited that she stayed dry and wanted to try it the next night. After that we havent looked back. She has had 1 accident in four-five weeks and that even included moving house, new bedroom, new environment etc. I think she was just being lazy and using the nappy because she could!
I dont know how she does it, but she manages to go 12 hours overnight without weeing. She has only gotten up once during the night to go to the toilet in the past month. I get up twice a night myself lol!
Its worth giving it a go. Just "forget" one night and see how you go. I found having a spare set of sheets and jammies close by was handy just in case of accidents. Or they say make the bed up twice (protector, sheet, protector, sheet) so you just remove one layer and off you go back to bed.
