Night time PT questions

My son will be 5 in March. Most nights, he stays dry. Still, once every week or two, he does go, and it's usually a LOT when he does (we still put training pants on him overnight), having to change sheets and all. This is normal, right? I know that it's a matter of him producing the necessary hormone to keep this from happening (and it usually takes longer for boys, right?), so we're not pushing him on it. We limit his drinks after dinner, as well. Since he's mostly dry, should we bite the bullet and just let him sleep in underwear, since he usually pees through the training pants anyway when he goes?

My daughter is 4 and is still in diapers for night too, I read that we shouldn't worry about it until after they turn 6 and still do this

I put my daughter in diapers because I don't want to keep changing the sheets every so often...but if she peed through them anyways I probably would just leave panties on her

My son is 3.5 and he's about 95 percent potty trained. We just let him wear underwear at night and if he pees through it then we just wash everything up. He mostly pees in the bed because he is afraid of the dark and doesn't want to get up. (He takes after me with being scared of the dark) I wouldn't worry too much about it since he is only having issues at nighttime. Every child is different and it just takes some a little more time than others. IMO I would just let him sleep in the underwear since he wets through the training pants anyway. Good luck

My DD just turned 5 at the end of Oct. Literally up until her birthday she was peeing in her pull-up EVERY night. (She had been day-trained since she was 3).

We tried so many different things but our pediatrician said that it just depends on when the "sensory" part of her brain fully develops enough to wake her up to go. She also said that it's nothing to worry about until DD was 8 or older.

Then the week after she turned 5... she just stopped going on her pull-up and has been dry ever since w/ NO accidents at all! So hang in there, hope it happens soon

I am so glad to see this thread!

I am glad to hear it is not uncommon. Luca will be 4 in May, and he still needs a pull up at night. We tried the underwear route, but he is so distressed if he pees and gets wet - he sees it as a personal failure, so we just went back to diapers.

Shortly after I posted this, I talked to hubby and we decided to go ahead and just have him wear underwear at night. He's been doing so ever since (about a week) and he's only peed once so far. Oddly enough, after I washed the mattress cover, we never put it back on, and he's not peed since then (knock on wood!). Hopefully things will stay this way.

We did the same, bit the bullet. It took about 3 or 4 nights and he's been dry ever since.

Argh, me & my big mouth...he wet the bed last night I'm not mad at him, I just can't help but feel like I jinxed myself by posting that last night Well, my mom watched the kids for a few hours last night, which means he probably drank WAY too much juice, which I'm sure doesn't help.

Mine that's been PT'd for a couple weeks hasn't peed the bed once but my son was a totally different story.
He wet his pants & the bed until he was around 8. It was a huge struggle. We had to do the timer thing but I honestly never used pull ups. I just did a lot of laundry.
I think they feel comfortable to go when they are asleep because they know they have a diaper on.

My son is 7 and still wets the bed. His doctor says it's totally normal. (His father's side of the family all had bedwetting issues)We use a potty alarm. It clips to his underwear and goes off at the first sign of moisture. It is the only way we can keep him dry most nights, otherwise he'll wet the bed nightly. Our doctor said do not put him in pull ups. We cover the mattress with multiple layers of protective plastic and he has a pad he sleeps on.
My 3 year old still wets at night too....he wears pull ups though. We will probably put the alarm on him as well.
