So when is a kid suppose to stop wearing pull-ups? My child has been potty trained for ages but still wears pull-ups at night. Any ideas for getting rid of those once and for all? Thanks.

    some how it just happened for us, i swear we went back and forth and finally we were done…no system.

    how is the tots website going ???

    Take a deep breath and remember — they will not be wearing them by the time they are 16. This will pass. Every little body develops differently. When it’s time, it’s time.

    this will pass.

    We just went cold turkey. We made sure they peed at bedtime. And Brad doesn’t go to bed until midnight at the earliest, so he would sleepwalk them to the bathroom and have them pee again. And no fluids after dinner.

  • No help here, my potty trained daughter has always been able to make it through the night, she even would wake with dry diapers right on the cusp of potty training.

    I would try no liquids at night and tinkle before bed. Also, a huge nudge to get to the potty asap when she wakes.

    Well, how often is the pull-up dry in the morning? I realized one day that the diaper was nearly always dry, and so we gave them up. It was probably four months after she was really day-trained.

    So sad to tell you that my oldest was consistently wet until the age of 7 or 8. he is 11 and still has an occasional accident. My other son was wet until 6 at night. I used the bed alarm, and it works well!!

    My daughter was dry through the night at 3.
