How on EARTH do you get a 4.5 yo to go to the restroom at night and NOT in his underwear? DS has been day trained since he was 3 but not nighttime. I KNOW that he can do it. He has proved it. He will wake up dry in his Pull Ups and even get up and go to the potty on occasion. He STILL wakes up on a nightly basis and I try to remember to get him to go to the bathroom but sometimes at 3 am my mind is not concerned about that! Anyway, he will stay dry and we make HUGE deals about it and he will do this for weeks or months and as soon as we move him to underwear, he starts wetting the bed! I have dealt with the bedwetting for a week of changing sheets in the middle of the night but it seems to not really phase him. I have even made him HELP me with it and do the laundry with me to show him it is no fun. With #2 on the way, I would LOVE to be out of pull ups and only buying diapers but at the same time I want DS to be comfortable with it all....make any sense?? Any ideas on how to get this accomplished? I really think that it is a control (mental) issue and NOT a physical issue.
