Hi ladies I have a 3 year old daughter were almost done potty training her and I was wondering when did you put your kids in underwares to sleep in for the night time right now we have her sleeping in pull ups at night but she's in underwares during the day and when she takes a nap she'll sleep with her underwares on too ane wake herself up when she has to go to the bathroom but me and my hubby are scared to have her sleep with them at night just not sure if she's ready for it yet

I did it when we noticed that he had been dry for quite a few nights....like over several weeks! We didn't intend for him to be night trained so eaisly, but he did LOL. It was only like a month after he was potty trained during the day.

When she insisted, as she'd been waking up dry for a LONG time! LOL you can also get the overnights pads that I would slip under the fitted sheet on her bed and then if she did go while she slept, you'd just have to change the top sheet and her clothes, not the mattress cover or worry about the mattress getting wet.

My son was in underwear full time by his third birthday. If she's waking up dry, or better yet, waking herself up if she needs to go, she's ready. Yes, she may have an accident now and again, but she may not. Ask her if she's ready :)

Does she wake up dry on a regular basis? If so, then try the panties at night. If not, then leave her in the pull-ups till she does. Just be sure that you have a waterproof mattress pad on the bed.

Mine was about 3.5 when we went to only underwear even at night. I should have done it sooner as whenever he had the pullups on, he KNEW he could pee in them and so he did rather than get up and go to the potty. I do have mattress covers on but luckily, we have only ever had 1 accident at night (I should capitalize LUCKY) so I'm thinking of taking it off since it makes that strange sqeeSquiiii sound when he moves around even under the sheets.

My middle son was waking up dry for a week straight in the diaper. He was also asking us to take him to the potty in the middle of the night and in the early morning. I asked him if he wanted to try sleeping in undies and he said he did. It's been three nights in undies now and he had one small accident. He waited too long and didn't get to the toilet in time but that's just part of the process! Figuring out how long to wait before it just comes out!
If she's waking herself from naps to pee, she's probably ready.
You can put down a plastic covering on her mattress so if she does pee through, just change her and her sheets and keep trying.

some mornings she'll wake up with her diaper dry and some nights she won't I want to try with just underwares ane see how she does cause it seems like when she has the pull ups on she knows its okay to go in it but when she has the underwares on she knows to go to the bathroom
