Using a potty during the day doesn’t mean your child is ready to go without nappies at night. Some experts say they’re separate processes, and daytime training is easier to start with.
Your child may be ready to try if their nappy stays dry (or nearly dry) for two or three nights in a row.
It can take years to learn to stay dry all night long. If your child has accidents every night, it may be too soon for them. Take a break, and try again after a week or two.
Don’t punish or shame your child for accidents. Potty training can be a challenging process – be patient, and try to stay positive. They’ll get there.
