Potty Training: Nighttime Urinary Control


Hello! I will begin potty training my son in June, at which point he will have just turned 20 months old. I have read your potty training book and everything else I’ve been able to find regarding potty training, including many of the questions here. However, I cannot seem to find a consistent message about nighttime during training.

My son still sleeps in a crib and is used to wearing overnight diapers to bed. I know you recommend getting rid of all diapers when training begins, but should that include overnight diapers as well? Should we continue to diaper him at night until he wakes up dry often enough to eliminate them? Given that he’s still in a crib, he would be unable to get up and go at night by himself, but I wouldn’t want the nighttime diapers to undo any progress we make during the day. Any advice you could offer would be great!

Thanks so much!
