So tonight Liam made the decision for me...he insisted on wearing his undies to bed unsure.gif I made him go to the toilet just before he went to bed. Now this is my prediction...he will either wet the bed and it will be a miserable day outside tomorrow or he will by dry and the weather will be too rolleyes.gif I guess I should invest in some more sheets just in case!!

How'd he go?

About the more sheets? Absolutely! When we moved Oscar to his big boy bed I asked MIL if she happened to have any single sheets before I went out and bought some. Surprise surprise - 4 matching brand new fitted single bed sheets (Sheridan). She'd seen them on super markdown a few years earlier and bought them - despite not having any single beds in her household wacko.gif

Anyway - if it's just for TT might be worth checking with parents or ILs if they have anything that they're not too attached to which you can wear out to save 'good' sheets?

Totally agree re it being a developmental thing, but I also think it is worthwhile to give them a couple of weeks in undies (if they are keen) to see what will happen.

I am indebted to a friend who told me about her experience with her DD who needed the nappy to be taken away in order to be dry overnight. This was exactly my experience with Rosie. Since then I have shared it with a few other friends whose 4 year olds (also girls, don't know if there is a correlation or just coincidence) were wet overnight and when the nappy was taken away they learned to be dry within a couple of weeks. When I say learning, I did nothing. No drink restrictions, no getting her up to go to the toilet. I just changed the bed and the pjs without fuss, reassured her. So it really wasn't training at all smile.gif .

With Rosie I used to double make the bed with 2 sets of sheets and mattress protectors. That was fine for the 2 weeks it took her to become dry. Eddie has been a much longer term project (has wet the bed for the last few nights, after 3 months of being dry overnight and 18 mths after we ditched night nappies wacko.gif ) and brolly sheets are my lifesavers. Just whip it off and replace it, change pjs and undies and he's back in bed within a couple of mins. I have 3 sets of sheets per child (more for nights of vomiting than wet beds) and also a spare doona for each of them.

Rosie can guzzle half her drink bottle at bed time and still won't wet the bed. If she needs the toilet she always wakes, despite being a very heavy sleeper. I try to encourage Eddie to have a big drink with his dinner so that he has time to go to the loo before bed, but I don't stop him drinking if he's thirsty. We ask him to go to the toilet right before bed but I would never wake him up to take him to the loo. It was my understanding that this doesn't work anyway.

Brolly sheets or conni pads are an absorbent top layer you can put over the top sheet and tuck in (like what you may have seen in hospitals). They absorb something like 2 litres of fluid and it means you don't have to worry about changing the whole bed.

They work very well and are worth it! Aldi have the conni ones cheap at different times.

He called out about 3am and sure enough I felt his pj's and they were wet sad.gif I had a nappy and pj's at the side of his bed ready so quickly got him in them and he came in bed with us. So what do you think? Go back to nappies for the moment or try the undies again tonight? Lucky it was a nice day so I washed and dried his sheets today.

Well I reckon if you are going to give it a go then give it a go. Try a week I reckon.

But that's just my opinion.

I think if I had given up at Oscar's first 'wet through' then he'd still be in a night nappy. But that is him and as already discussed, the path to toilet training is different for every child.

Maybe get some pads/brolly sheets ASAP, though, just in case?

claire do you still have your waterproof cot protector? i have two brolley sheets but for a spare i turn the cot protector sideways - it just covers the single matress - then put a folded sheet over it to tuck under the matress and hold it there.

I'm with Puggie Claire, I would keep going for a week and re-assess wink.gif I think wetting is part of the learning process. If it happens night after night for a week though I would go back to nappies and try again in a mont or two. I hope he is having a dry night right now smile.gif

Vaalentine, didn't think you were calling my gf lazy, I just didn't want anyone to think I was suggesting the use of pull ups was lazy...it seems you and I both don't want to offend anyone!!

Melissa - my friend has a 9yo still in pull-ups, she has tried everything and has now resorted to a chiro (not sure on the research behind it). She is having some success I think.

I was going to wait until Nina was dry overnight but as most of you say, it might not happen so perhaps I should just go with it. A little loathe to in the winter months so might wait til it's a bit warmer.

I don't think there is going to be a bladder control problem, she can hold it all day long (which is not good I know but she just won't go!)

Well I think I am just going to let it go for the moment. He refused to wear undies last night and wanted his nappy on, so I am not going to push it. It was quite full this morning. Will give it another few months. Thanks all for the advice biggrin.gif

I think that's sensible. I think the "give it a couple of weeks" advice only works if the child is keen. Otherwise it might really upset them.

Glad I found this thread!
Last night was night 5 of no nappy and Nina has wet every night.
Keep persisting?

I think it depends on if you are still happy to keep doing the washing and if she is getting distressed or not. I personally wouldn't. I've got one night trained and one not and the one who isn't just can't wake up. He had a dry nappy a few weeks ago so we left it off the next night to see what would happen. I reckon he must have weed about 3 times and yet we still had to wake him from his swamp the next morning.

So he'll be in night nappies a while longer and we're all happy with this.

If she's still keen Monica, I would. As I said in my post above, Rosie wet every night for 2 weeks before she became dry.

Having said that, our ECHN said that 20% of 4 year olds are still in night nappies so it's possible she's not ready. Good luck!
