Nighttime dryness evolves naturally as your child grows, and most children are okay with that. If your eager-to-please toddler is concerned, just explain that their body is still growing and it will eventually happen. In the meantime, we have our Pull-Ups® Night*Time characters to keep us company.
- Take your eager-to-please toddler to the potty before bed to get them into the habit.
- If your child needs extra absorbency, try Pull-Ups® Night*Time training pants at night for extra absorbency. Explain to your child that these special Night*Time Pull-Ups can make it easier to use the bathroom at night because they already knows how to use them. “As you grow, your body won’t need to pee as much at night, and you will learn to hold your pee inside you until after you wake.”
- In the mornings, emphasize that a trip to the potty is Job Number One. “Whenever you wake up, the first thing we do is go to the potty.”
- “Your body isn’t needing to pee during the night much anymore. I think you’re ready to try sleeping in your Big Kid underwear/jammies. Would you like to give that a try tonight?” (Moms and Dads, if this makes you nervous, you can always add a GoodNites® Disposable Bed Mat for protection the first few nights to see how things go.)
Your Eager-to-Please child needs to know that you are still a part of the process, so continue to encourage them when things don’t go as well.
