Does anybody have any tips for nighttime training your child? DS1 is not trained at 4-1/2. He rarely wakes up with his Goodnite dry... I would say...not even once per week.

It seems like he's probably not ready yet then. You could try waking him up to go before you go to bed and see how that helps but it seems like some kids just need to wait for their bladder to grow big enough.

A few friends have recommended the Hyland's Bedwetting tablets. I've always done well with Hyland's products... but I'm not sure if this needs meds, KWIM??<br><br>
We've been talking with DS about how he's old enough to wear underwear all night long... so we may try it tonight. I know a few friends of said just wake him to go to the bathroom when you go to bed...and if you're up. (DD1 still nurses a few times at night, so I never sleep though.)<br><br>
One night DS1 urinated into a bucket in his room... when I found it the next day, he said "I needed to go potty." I wonder if putting one of the old training potties in his room would make it easier?? No idea.

Thanks. I've been wondering that, actually. I'm OK with it as is DP. My son's not embarrassed at all... so I guess we have time to wait if we need to. Part of me wonders if he's not trained because I haven't pushed it... we've used Goodnites, etc.

If it helps, I still had a lot of accidents at night even at age 6, and my 5 year old still wears pullups to bed...he wakes up dry maybe 1/2 the time?
