Does anyone find .

...that their little one smells once their night nappy has been removed?
Bit of a random post , but I'm just finding Pearl sometimes smells a bit of stale wee once her night nappy is removed in the morning. So am having to give her a little wash. I stripped the nappies the other day but it doesn't seem to have helped...

Yes, always. And their night nappies absolutely reek :puke: I think its just where their urine is more concentrated at night.

Thanks ladies , I'm sick of these night nappies but not sure how to go about night potty training. Especially as Pearl takes a drink of water to bed with her...

IMO you can't night train. It just happens when they are ready. The signal that is sent from the kidneys to the brain that wakes us up when we need to go is the last to develop apparently. Some people lift their children before they go to bed but that's never worked here as both R and K wee in the early hours of the morning too. A was dry at night a few months after PTing but I am still :waiting: for R and K :roll: R sleeps so deeply he just doesn't wake up when he needs to go. I am hoping at least one of them will start having dry nappies soon!!

Lifting Rufus doesn't work either as he wees in the early hours, he's dry about 50% of the time. I think it's just a waiting game.

Yep, night nappies hum and a wash is necessary.

You just have to wait for night dryness to happen. We've never lifted. We decided that they are either properly dry, with no help from us, or they still needed night nappies.

A friend of mine went nappy free with her daughter ( same age as P) both in the day and night at the same time. She said that she was dry at night from night one which she really shocked about and took her about a week to get the day "training". I never really thought about doing that , where as she was surprised when I said we hadn't ( not in a nasty way just hadn't realised that wasn't the norm).
Its interesting how they are all so different.
Its funny as thinking back Pearl was probably dryer at night when we first started PT so maybe I would have been better doing that.
She did ask about not wearing a nappy at night the other day so thats a good sign. But you guys are so rights its about letting them do it in their own time! Problem is we only have 5 night nappies ...so with washing and drying its a bit of a pain...
