They are more big kid centered.

It is tough too, mine wanted to be dry and went potty before bed but it just took longer than for the other two. Good luck and hope he doesn't get too worried

    Since DD2 had to wear a nighttime diaper or pull-up for more than 5 years beyond when she daytime PT'ed, we've tried them all. Out of the TruFits, Goodnights, Huggies Nighttime pull-ups, generic brands...Underjams were mine (and DD2's) preferred ones. They are softer and thinner, more comfy, more "low-waisted", and made less noise than the others (for sleepover purposes). The TruFit inserts are VERY bulky - like a huge maxi pad. The undies that they come with are cute and soft but the inserts made them not worth it for us...of course YMMV since this is all personal preference!!

    I totally agree there's no need to rush it. That said, if he's still really really wanting to be dry at night, maybe consider the Malem alarm. We used it with DD1 at age 6 and it worked beautifully. Best money I ever spent on baby/child gear. Seriously. I think we used it nightly for 2 solid months because you are supposed to continue to use it nightly until they are consistently dry for a number of weeks in a row. DD1 is a heavy heavy sleeper and she just wasn't getting the body-brain signal to wake up to use the bathroom. The alarm somehow helped train her brain to recognize the urge and wake up. Miracle!

    And case in point that she's a sound sleeper...she's now soon to be 10 and woke me up at 4:45am to tell me her bed was wet. She was so groggy that she said she thought he was in the bathroom going pee, not her bed! She hasn't had an accident in years!

Have had great improvement or total elimination of: migraines, bloating/distention, heartburn, cystic acne, canker sores, bleeding gums, eczema on elbows, dry skin and scalp, muscle cramps, PMS, hair loss, heart palpitations, fatigue. I'm amazed.
