Most of the time I’m winging it when it comes to being a parent. I’m always searching online for answers to particular parenting questions I have. We all know though, the internet’s advice can be so conflicting and downright crazy. In light of this I’ve decided to start a category called ‘advice needed’ and this is the first of many. Believe me, I could always do with a bit of advice. So here goes my latest dilemma, night training my oldest.
Aidan is four at the end of the month and has been day toilet trained for a year now. He had no bother toilet training whatsoever. In fact he flew through it.
However, a year on, he is still wearing a pull up at night and said pull up is always saturated in the mornings. Sometimes he even wets through it and ends up cold and shivering in bed.
So my question is, when and how do I night train him? I’ve tried lifting him before I go to bed and I tell him to get up if he needs the loo. It makes no difference. I feel awful waking him because he never needs to go when I do.
Is night training something that will eventually come naturally to him or do I need a plan?
Thanks in advance for your tips and advice everyone.
