Night time PT-initiate or wait?
DD1 (3.5yo) has been daytime pt'd for 6mos now. She still wears a pull up for nap and night time. She's a very deep sleeper and doesn't wake to go to the bathroom but I do think an overly wet pull up will wake her most mornings but at that point her bladder is already empty. Her nap is usually 1-2hrs long and she's about 50/50 on waking up with a dry pull up.
Just this week she has started to talk about wanting to wear undies for nap and bedtime. We stayed at a friend's house for New Year's and they have a 4yo who is night trained and I think she wants to be like her friend.
I know a lot of people say that night time PT is more about physical readiness than anything else. So do I just keep encouraging her but still keep using pull ups until I notice that she's dry more often than not? Do we switch to unders, double bag her mattress and cross our fingers that we won't be doing tons of laundry for weeks on end? What did you do?
