DS turned 3 in May of this year, and had been daytime/naptime potty trained since he was just over 2 years old. He would have the odd accident, but I just ensured that he'd pee just before his nap (which were generally about 2 hours long). Night time training is a whole other story!! I decided I was DONE with pull-ups just after he turned 3 years old, so I bought a mattress cover and began the long journey. Similarly, as with his naps, I make sure he has peed before bed and if his bedtime is 8pm, then he doesn't drink ANY liquids past 6:30pm. Once he is asleep for 2 hours, I go into his room, wake him up to use the bathroom (he is barely awake) and again 2 hours after that. I find that if I do this, he manages to not pee the rest of the night. I realise that I am doing the work, and he isn't even aware of what is happening, but I figure it's totally worth the trouble and from my understanding, boys are quite difficult to night train. Good luck with everything!!!

How do you potty train for night time?
My oldest wore diapers for a few months after being daytime trained. When he was ready (physically ready) he started staying dry all night. My 2 year old has been potty trained during the day and for naps for a few months now. He still wets at night several times a week so he wears a diaper. When he starts staying dry consistently, we'll stop the diapers.
I don't think there's anything you can do to encourage that.
