My almost 6 year old son is still wearing diapers at night. He is such a sound sleeper and doesn't even wake up. We've attempted to train him and have done everything you are supposed to do including stopping liquids after 5:00 PM. His diaper is so full at night that 3 out of 7 nights he's leaked, even after double diapering But many toddlers are not developmentally ready to wake up when they sense that their bladder is full or hold their urine for 10 or 12 hours, making nighttime potty training a little more elusive. In fact, most children's systems don't mature enough to stay dry all night until at least age 5, 6 or even 7 Taking away diapers cold turkey, or carrying a slumbering child to the toilet at 10 p.m. for a final visit, won't speed up the process. You can get sneaky to keep the momentum going, like Munro did: Alivia isn't physically mature enough to stay dry all night, but Munro didn't have the heart to put her back in diapers after touting diaper. Sometimes a bigger diaper at night can help prevent leaking. For example, if your baby is wearing a size 3 during the day but is peeing through these diapers at night, try going up to a size 4. Keep your baby in their size 3 during the day but get a box of size 4 for nighttime. The bigger diaper needs to still be snug around the waist and thighs Hi, my daughter is 4.5 and still wets every night. She wears nappies as they are what work for us, however by the morning not only is her nappy full she has also pooped in it. I haven't said anything to her because I thought she would grow out of it however at the age she is now it's not the most pleasant task to clean a messy 4yr olds bum.
Two of the others were six and a half and the third was a year older than that. Number 5 looks as though he is following in his siblings' footsteps - he still wets when asleep in the car or having a nap so we put him in padded trainer pants then and he has nappies at night I have a six year old stepdaughter that was still wearing pull-ups at night when I first met her at 3. I always thought that she would outgrow it within a year or so, but she wet every night until literally a month ago. We discovered that she would intentionally wet her pull-up while she was still awake instead of getting up to pee While you should wait until your toddler is dry in the day, it can take months or even years for some children to master night-time dryness, so don't take away bedtime nappies until you feel he's ready Question: My seven-year-old son is still wearing those pull-up nappy things at night as he would wet the bed on a regular basis if he went without them. This doesn't overly concern me; I know some. My 6 yo DD still sets the bed at night and shows no signs of being dry yet. We use pampers size 8 on her and her nappy is always at least half full should I push the issue with our gp or wait a bit longer? She will have it on a bit longer on weekends and sometimes use it for morning wee but most of the time is good with it
