Best of the Forums: Sleep Potty Training

Posted By Melissa McKenzie, Monday, February 26, 2018

There are so many great conversations going on in our PAMP Facebook group.  Here is one of the most popular threads of the past month. Check out what other PAMP moms are discussing.

I still have my 2.5 yr old in diapers for nap and overnight. Any thoughts on transitioning to being sleep potty trained? Any thoughts about switching to pull ups?

  • It totally depends on the kids when to go dry for night. My oldest potty trained at 2.9 but wore a diaper or pull up until well past 4 - he just was a night time pee kid. Our peds said it's developmental and you can't rush it (we tried the taking him to the potty at 11pm or every 3 hours overnight - he would still be wet). Then my second kid potty trained at 2.9 (again) and was dry that night forward. Don't rush it, you'll only end up in a battle. Diapers vs pull ups was a size question for us - my first was a big kid and pull ups run larger.

  • We had the same experience as the other person who commented. We just waited until our daughter was dry through the night for 5 days in a row, then moved to pull ups and when she was confident and ready, to underwear overnight. She would have taken bedwetting really hard, so we just waited until she was ready.

  • We told my son that when he was dry for a week in a row he could switch to underwear.

  • We were on a trip and noticed that she was falling asleep with all her clothes on (no pull up) and not having any issues - so we got rid of the pull ups when we came back. this was around 2y 9m.

  • We ditched diapers cold turkey for naps, just explaining that she needs to save her pee for when she wakes up. She peed on herself the first diaperless nap (she was commando, which I think helps her feel the lack of a diaper) and has been 100% dry since. Night time is a different beast though. I'm using diapers/pullups (they're the same thing, really) until she is out of a crib and can get up to pee on her own at night. Night time sleep is more important to me than staying dry through the night. She not even two, and I'm not worried about it yet.

  • Are you limiting fluid intake? I haven’t crossed this bridge yet but did read something suggesting that could help.
