What is your child’s potty personality?
Our brief assessment will help you determine what kind of Potty Partner you have and provide a personalized lesson plan on how to achieve potty training success together based on the results.
Nighttime dryness evolves naturally as your child grows, and most children are okay with that. If your Puppy is concerned, just explain that his body is still growing and it will eventually happen.
Many young children sleep so deeply at night that they’re difficult (or impossible) to awaken. Even if Mom or Dad is standing over them, telling them it’s time to try the potty, that kiddo just will not wake up. So there’s no way that an underdeveloped, tiny signal in the body saying, “hey, sweetie, time to go pee pee,” is strong enough to rouse them. That’s why day training and night training are two completely different animals. Because we’re simply awaiting your child’s physical development, there’s no trick to speed up nighttime potty training, so hopefully you can give your child (and yourself) a break on this one.
Your Puppy needs to know that you are still a part of the process, so continue to encourage him when things don’t go as well.
How will you know when your child is ready to try moving away from using Pull-Ups at night and go into just wearing undies and jammies? If he’s consistently dry every morning, you can talk about his growing body to see if he’s interested in sleeping without Pull-Ups.
Is your child over the age of 4 and fully potty trained by day, but still wetting the bed three to five times each week? You are not alone! What’s commonly known as “bedwetting” may actually be a medical condition called nocturnal enuresis, and it affects five to seven million children in the U.S. The best thing you can do for your child is to make her feel comfortable. Let her know you are not upset or disappointed, and consider products like GoodNites®, which can help ease the stress of bedwetting. Talk to your pediatrician for more information about nocturnal enuresis.
