Daytime vs Nighttime Dryness


My 2 year old daughter has been potty trained for 2 months now and is still wetting the bed at night how long should I give her until I use the blanket with a buzzer to wake her up when she pees ?


Thanks for reaching out and congratulations on the potty training! Referencing the chapter, Adventures On (and Around) the Great White Water Chair from "Making the Terrible Twos Terrific" by John Rosemond, it can take up to 6 months of daytime dryness before nighttime dryness will occur so be patient and hold on - nighttime dryness will happen. Every few weeks, don't use the nighttime diaper to see if your daughter is ready to stop it altogether.

Hang in there,
