My son turned 3 on March 30th and is almost officially potty trained. We're only on day 4 and he hasn't had a single accident in 2 days and is staying dry during nap time. When can I expect him to stay dry through the entire night?

Congrats! We JUST started my son out yesterday.

Staying dry though the night is the longest potty training process. It will really depend on your kiddo.

My nephew (who is almost 5, and was potty trained at 3.5 years old) I think took almost a year to wake up dry in the mornings.

Good luck!

When they wake up dry in their diaper or pull-up, that's when they're ready. My dd night-trained at the same time she day-trained, just before age 3. But she has always had really good bladder control. She can easily go 4-6+ hours without peeing during the day.

Yes, check her nappy when she wakes up in the morning. If you experience three days with dry nappy in the morning, let him sleep the following evening without one. As for my DD, she stopped peeing during her sleep even before we potty trained her. So it was only day-training we did, as she pretty much night-trained herself ahead of time.

My son did it almost as soon as he started going on the potty. One trick is cut liquids off 2 hours before bedtime and remind them to "go" before you put them down for the night.

I also cut off liquids 2 hours before sleep and put him on the potty right before bed. I really try to get all the pee out of him before he goes to bed. If you want to speed up the process you can try putting him in his underwear and cotton pants (take off bedding - hopefully you have a plastic type mattress).

He will have a few cry's when he wets himself, but he will get the association much quicker. They are more than physically able to hold it overnight at that age, so it is a matter of creating the habit.

Luka had a dry diaper for 2 weeks when I decided to take the diaper off him....he had 2 accidents but nothing since. We never cut liquids though and he always drinks water during the night!
