Nappy at night
My 4 yr old son still wears a nappy when sleeping at night. I'm a heavy sleeper so it's difficult waking up every two hours for him to pee. Does kids stop wetting the bed at some point OR do I really need to waking up at night? How can I stop him from wearing a nappy at night?

Thanks You

Have patience. He will come right. Dont force things. Use a trainer nappy. If he is still wetting at 5 years see your paediatrician.
