Hi Oku! Nice to meet you hun. This is what my husband and I did. My boy was potty trained at 5 years with a few months before 6 years.

What my husband and I did was take turns waking him up twice at night. We did not let him drink water too close to bedtime. We set the alarm for about midnight and 3 o'clock in the morning. Now we wake him up at about 2-3 in the morning. He does not like it sometimes but I think that if we stop, he will pee on the bed.

Good luck hun!

I have a NT little 6 yr daughter that still wets the bed, I should see about getting one of those wireless systems. THe funny thing is, my little autistic 3 yr old wakes up dry more often than my daugher does LOL go figure!

Once your child is mostly dry during the day you will then be able to start night-time toilet training. Have a set bedtime routine which does not change . Limit the amount your child eats and drinks before bed, no fluid an hour before bedtime, but ensuring your child has enough fluid throughout the day. Take your child to the toilet before they go to bed. They then may need to be taken once during the night. You could fit this in with your routine . , you may need to try different times in the night to take them - may be not when you go to bed but in the middle of the night
