Is anyone elses LO still wearing nappies/diapers for bed?
Heck yeah. But mostly because Esther is such a horrendous sleeper, I get up enough times in the night without having Ava add to that by getting me up so she can pee. So she's probably quite capable of staying dry all night - she often is dry in the morning - but I'm going to keep her in them for a bit longer.
I've just recently put Nate back in special night-time big boy pants (what we tell him pull ups are called!) because he's gone through a spell of wetting the bed every night :eek: after months and months of being dry. I think its because he got sick and that threw him off a bit. I'm going to wait till he's dry for a good week or more before I take him out of them again. I just can't keep up with the laundry with him wetting the bed all the time! Especially with no dryer!
Do you have any tips for me?
Some nights Leia wakes up completely dry, others she is soaking wet (in her nappy). Should I try her without a nappy, make sure she goes toilet before bed and let her know she needs to wake up if she has to pee?
We try to cut Nate's drinks out just after 6pm, 6:30 at the absolute latest! He's in bed by 7:30. We make him go pee last think before he gets into bed. And I ask him every night "what do you do if you need to go wee in the middle of the night?" And he says "get up and go" Though I swear he's only gotten up and gone once or twice since we started what seems like forever ago! Anyway, if you want to give it a go, go for it! Have a water proof mattress protector on under the sheets, and those pampers/huggies bed wetter mats are great too.
I think I will struggle with reducing her juice because that is all she drinks and a fair amount too! I am trying to stop her dirnking so much before her tea because she's not eating porperly at the moment and that's hard enough!
I will give it a go once I get the mats etc.
Thanks for the advice
Mickie goes to bed @ 8pm. She gets a cup of juice with her dinner, and when that is gone I will fill it up about 1/2 way with water. She doesn't like the taste of plain water, so she doesn't drink more than a sip or two.
We still use pullups at night-but not at naptimes. She often wakes up dry, but she's a heavy sleeper, and I would have to say it's about a 50% chance every night that she'll wake up dry, or wake up soaked.
A friend told me to start letting her sleep sans pullup anyway, and that waking up wetting the bed would startle her awake and she would begin to wake up on her own before she wet...but IDK...that just seems like a lot of work on ME...can you imagine having to wash the sheets every day?!?! If she makes it to 4 and is still not consistent, then I will consider it...
I put Thomas in a pullup at night. It's usually dry in the morning, but not always. Some mornings- like today- he wets through. It doesn't wake him up. Maybe I should try the night-time pull-ups. They're just so expensive!
Night time training is so hard!!! DS has not worn a pull up since April. He feels that if he has to wear a pull up then he is a baby and he is always telling me that he's a "big boy"! He does... ok. We will go 3 weeks completely dry at night and then go 1 week, sometimes 2 weeks, completely soaked. It's tough. But, he is learning to wake up when he is wet and he comes and asks for help. He will change his clothes and I will change his sheets. A few times he has gotten up and asked to go potty.
We try to stop giving drinks after dinner and he goes potty at least 2 times before bed. As soon as he wakes up in the morning, he has to go potty.
