Hi All,

My DS (who will be 3 in April), decided to toilet train about 3 weeks ago. He pretty much woke up one morning and said no nappy, so we didn't. He has only had about 2-3 accidents in that time.

He has now decided that he has had enough with nappies altogether and refuses to put one on for day or night sleeps, so we fight to get one put on. He then goes to bed and promptly takes it off!

Usually at night we discover it off so will put it back on. He is dry most of the time from his day sleep and about 1/2 the time from his night sleep...

Do you think I should fight to keep a nappy on him or should we just put up with a few wet sheets to get him night trained? Is it too soon after day training to expect him to night train? Because day training was so easy, will he night train just as quickly?

Thoughts, should I persist with the nappy?

I think I would persist - he wants tho do it, that's the best time.

I would be taking him to do a wee just before bed to help. Brolly sheets or other water proof cover might be a good investment.

I'd put up with a few wet sheets and get him night trained if he is showing an interest.

This is how my DD1 night trained (just on 3 years old at the time). She just said she didn't want night nappies anymore so I told her she'd have to get up to wee if she needed to. She wet the bed once or twice but that was it. We didn't make a big deal of it, we just said never mind and put some clean undies on, and stripped the bed.

For the first six months or so I would just go into her room as I was going to bed each night and carry her to the toilet. She never fully woke up but was semi aware, would wee, and go back to bed and that would see us through to morning. we stopped that when she started to protest but at the same time she started to wake up and go to the toilet if she needed to.

In our case, day training was easy and she was done in a day. Night training was just as easy pretty much done within a few days. I think the fact that she was wanting to do it, rather than us deciding it was time for her to do it (as I was happy to leave it as long as needed) made the difference. So the fact he is showing interest and wanting to is a really good time to do it!

Brolly sheets are a godsend.  Go with what he wants its so much easier if you are not fighting.

I agree with pp's - give it a shot.  Mum says my sister and I both day and night trained at the same time.  DD turned 3 in July and has recently night trained - we had a few wet nights atthe beginning, but now it's rare (less than once a fortnight)

My DD day & night trained just recently - pretty much happened at the same time.  We still put her in a cloth nappy overnight just in case, but its dry nearly every morning.  I'll continue doing that while she is happy to do so.
