DS is 3.5 and something seems to have 'clicked' just in the last few days. This time a week ago be was NOT giving up his nappies for anybody, the mention of toilet seemed to send him into a blind rage..
I'd had enough, I just told him the nappies were all gone during the day, and only or bedtime. He seemed to accept that and we've had no accidents for 2 days now. Mostly he still needs a lot of prompting, and I take him every hour. He has only so far told me once when he needs to go.
Last night he didn't want to wear a nappy to bed. I told him of it was dry in the morning we would talk about it tomorrow, thinking there was no way in hell it would be dry.
Well F me, it was! I don't think it was a fluke, as he had a huge wee when he got up that he was obviously holding on to.
So WDYT? Day and night training at the same time? I was always told to do day first and then night later on, but if he's ready...?

no harm in trying!! if he wets way to often u can easily put him back in nappies!! my DS would of been dry alot younger if i got rid of the nappies but i didnt till he was alot older and he was dry that night from then on.

I say go with it. He's old enough to at least be giving it a go.
My daughter is 2.5 and was day trained in a day. Her nappies were dry overnight within a week, so we just cut them out altogether and she is dry.
My son, on the other hand, was day trained at 2.5 but is still wetting the bed at 5.5. We've tried a few times to take him out of pull-ups, but he is just such a heavy sleeper that nothing we've tried has worked so far. We will give him a few more months before we try to tackle it again.

For some kids I do think it can happen at the same time. It didn't for mine but it did for some friends children.

I am (fingers & toes crossed) at the end of training my DS (similar age) and he had a similar thing, after a few days I just totally did away with all nappies and he is 100% fine at night. I just make sure inhale a waterproof underlay on his bed as a backup but actually found for him telling him a nappy at night was ok sent a very mixed signal.
Goodluck, I am still prompting him in the day but have found he is generally going once in the morning, then afternoon and before his bath. As for poo this for him has been actually ok, only difference is I am finding he is going every 2nd day where he was every day in nappies.

I agree with PP - go for it.
If you do find that he is still wetting the bed and that one night was just a fluke, then he is old enough to understand why he needs to go back into nappies (make sure he sees you having to strip the bed, wash it all, hang it out, fold it up, make his bed again).
My DS2 at 2.9yo told me two weeks ago that he didnt want to wear a nappy to bed and hes had two accidents but the last was about 6 night ago. I think that once they hit this stage, that they learn more from wetting the bed than wetting their nappy.
