So you’ve conquered daytime potty training. Your toddler loves their new pants and you can’t even remember when their last little accident was. But does your little one still wear a night-time nappy?
If you’re like the majority of mums, your tot will still be in a nappy at night long after their dry during the day.
According to Amanda Jenner of the Potty Training Academy, you’re doing the right thing. ‘I always advise parents to wait until their child is reliably dry during the daytime before tackling nights,’ she says. ‘Trying to do it all at once can be daunting, result in more accidents which can be upsetting for your little one, and make you more likely to give up.’
You're ready to ditch the night time nappies if:
- Your tot successfully uses a potty during the day
- She is able to hold on for a few minutes before she wees
- Your youngster doesn’t like her wet nappy in the morning
- She tells you her night-time nappy is wet or wakes up with a dry one
