Zac will be 4 in less than a month now and he still wears an overnight diaper to bed. He's fine at nap time and he's been doing great during the day for about a year and half now so no complaints there!
I realized the other day that he is almost 4 and still wearing a diaper so we started talking to him about wearing underwear to bed as well. He thought that was a great idea. I know he's not quite ready because his nightime diaper is still fairly wet. Zac tends to be a little lazy though and if you don't push him to do certain things, he just won't. So I thought if he wet his bed and felt it a couple of times, he would learn.
Last night was our first try and I fully expected to be changing his bed in the middle of the night. He woke up about 6:30 and came to the top of the stairs to call us. His bed was wet but when we changed it, we realized that it was almost dry. He hadn't JUST peed the bed, it had happened some time during the night and he never bothered to get up!!! I find this kind of troubling because it shoots my theory of "letting him feel it to learn" out the window.
We may keep trying it for a few days to see if he catches on but maybe he's just truly not ready at almost 4.....
