Tips and Tricks for a 6year old to stop using diaper at night




While some parents believe It’s hormonal factor that can’t be train, others think otherwise. 


You can help with reducing water intake 




Limit fluid and take your child for a wee when you want to go to bed. Eg, they go to bed at 7.30 then at 9.30 when you go to bed take them for a wee. 


Set Alarm 



A Parents view


 "I limited fluids for my son and set an alarm for around 1am. I would run the bathroom sink water and stand him up between my legs and hold him up under his arms. He would practically still be asleep. "


Sometimes it took a good 5 min but it worked. Did this for 4 to 6 months. I was tired, he was tired but it worked.


Using wetness Alarm


I’ve heard about wetness alarms that  go off to wake the child up before bed wetting.


Am not sure If it works with deep sleep ring child. 


Set the bed up really well with waterproof covers. 





 Waking up your child at night


Just like day time training, gotta night time train.


 Unfortunately that involves you waking up in the middle of the night to pick your child from bed take  the child to the bathroom  until it’s second nature for them to do it themselves.

My daughter doesn’t get anything to drink after dinner and I remind her to use the potty before bed. If she thinks she needs to or not, she has to try. Then before I go to bed, I carry her to the bathroom and sit her on the potty again to try. She’s 4 and has been out of diapers since 2 and night time potty trained just before 4.
