Hi Everyone, my 4 month old DD wakes up a few times a week with a dry nappy after having a good feed before I put her down of a night. Normally she sleeps from about 9.00pm to 6.00am. Is this waking up dry normal? I never experienced this with my DS. Any one else experience this?

TIA!

Yes, she's completey well and growing and putting on weight as per normal. It's just so bizarre!

Who knows, I don't know if it is a problem or not?
I suppose she "tanks up" in the day on feeds.
Could you give your chn a ring and ask?
I wonder if she will be one of those children who toilet "trains" early, time will tell!

DD2 would wake up dry at times when she started sleeping though the night. She was only around 6 weeks old. It's happened on and off ever since.

I was worried it meant I wasn't giving her enough feeds. My child heath nurse said it was nothing to worry about. I can't remember exactly what she said now, but it was something like the output slows down overnight when they are in a really long sleep. Sometimes they can wake up dry.

And DD did not TT early. Day trained at about 2.9 years (took a few months) and is still in night nappies at 4y.

I thought the same thing too: that everything just slows down overnight including urine production. I just wanted some reasurrance I guess...

My DD2 is 3.5 months, sleeps usually from 21:00-07:00 (sometimes wakes to feed at 02:00). Sometimes she also wakes dry but as soon as I feed her which is pretty much as soon as she wakes, she does up to 2 poo & wee nappies. She is 6.2kg and in the 90% for height & weight so she seems very healthy.

Ah, there goes that wishful theory!
