I'm thinking about trying again with Isaiah once the weather gets a bit warmer and I can get washing out on the line. I tried last summer but he just got too upset everytime he wet the bed and didn't want to do it anymore. I'm super conscious about though since I had problems until my teens.
You can't really night train in the same way you can daytime potty train. Their brains need to recognise a full bladder in their sleep and wake them up. It's not something you can 'teach/learn'
Boys are commonly later at night dryness than girls and it's not unusual for a child to still be bed wetting at 7/8.
'Lifting' or putting them on the toilet when you go to bed is counter productive. You aren't teaching them to recognise a full bladder - just reinforcing weeing in the night when they are still asleep.
Give it time.
James only night trained about 5 months ago. He was almost going through but would wet around 4-5am. And he was a very heavy sleeper. Then all of a sudden he was sleeping through with a dry nappy in the morning. He still very occasionally has an accident If he has a big drink before bed.
As long as the child is not distressed by wearing nappies/pull-ups then I wouldn't force the issue and just encourage weeing before bed and first thing in the morning.
hi we have used minki pull ups (yoyos) with success, easy to stuff and adjust absorbency found them to fit well. also minki xl pockets as my little one didn't mind that they were nappies. she's just stopped wearing them at 5 and so far we have had a week of dry nights with only 1 little wee!
