It’s nice if your child is potty-trained at some point during the day. That is quite a milestone, being potty trained during the daytime is intensive. Often there is also pressure because schools require your child to be potty-trained before he/she goes to primary school.
Be patient and consitent
If your child is potty-trained during the day, it can really take a while before the potty-training also works at night. Of the group of children who are five years old, approximately 15% are still bedwetting at night once a week and this is actually not uncommon until the age of seven. So don’t worry, but you can train it. Potty training requires a lot of patience and consistency. Start by buying enough waterproof mattress protectors. This keeps your child’s mattress clean, otherwise you will need to replace the mattress in no time!
Start during a peaceful period
Start with the potty training when you are with the family in a peaceful period during which you all have both enough attention and peace of mind to focus on the process. For example, don’t start right before Christmas or a birthday.
How to use a good toilet training
If you meet all of the above conditions, you can take the next step in your research into nighttime toilet training. The NHG shows that the bedwetting alarm is the best way for your child to get started with their bedwetting problems.
As you now know, motivation is extremely important for the success of the bedwetting alarm training. Dryly has added Wizzu the pandabear so that a large amount of stress falls off the shoulders of the child (and parent)! The app has a game element that gives Wizzu the pandabear all cool accessories.
In addition to the game element, Wizzu gives a lot of insight into the time of the accident by displaying it in a puddle calendar. This way you will have a good overview of how things are going and you will be able to provide your doctor with high quality information right away!

Tips for effective toilet training
Below are some useful tips that will help you and your child go on an adventure to dry nights. Keep in mind that a child usually does not pee in bed ‘on purpose’ and that perseverance is a good thing!
Have patience and provide consistency
If your child is house-trained during the day, it can really take a while before the cleanliness succeeds at night. Of the group of children who are five years old, about 15% are still wet at night once a week and this is not unusual until the age of seven. So don’t worry, but you can train it. Training for toilet-friendliness requires a lot of patience and consistency. Start by buying enough waterproof mattress protectors. This way you can keep your child’s mattress clean, otherwise you can replace the mattress in no time as well!
Start in a calm period
Start with the toilet training when you are with the family in a quiet period in which you all have the peace and attention it gives to the process. For example, not just for a birthday or christmas.
Potty training at night can be started by letting your child pee before you go to bed yourself. It is good to actually wake up your child so that this becomes a conscious step during the entire process. You actually wake up your child and then walk him or her to the toilet. This reduces the risk of bedwetting, but it is not a guarantee.
2. Make it easy for your child to get out of bed at night
When you start potty training, it is also important that you create the right conditions in your child’s bedroom. It is important that your child can get in and out of bed easily and that there is a light on at night so that the way to the toilet can easily be found.
3. Be clear that you are going to start potty training
Clearly agree with your child that you start potty training at night together. Make a calendar or buy a diary in which you write down whether your child has a dry or a wet night after each night. This can be done very simply by drawing a sun or raindrops.
4. Positive rewards
During potty training it is very important to reward your child positively and not to pay attention to the negative aspects. For example, stipulate that after three dry nights, your child gets to decide what you eat that day. Small positive rewards contribute greatly to your child’s awareness of potty training.
5. Changing the bed together
When your child is a bit older, a part of the potty training can be that you and your child change the bed. Do not make it a negative moment, but it may help if the child experiences the consequences of bedwetting. Moreover, most children actually enjoy helping mom or dad!
We wish you the best of luck with your child’s potty training!
