Bumping this thread as the puppy has been dry at night for a good while now but has just had a run of a week of wetting at night. Driving me potty (ah hahahahaha, sigh). He doesn't care at all, which is good but frustrating!

We think it's because he's a really heavy sleeper and it coincides with us making him walk to and from nursery every day, which means he's walking 2 miles a day plus all his running around. I guess this is tiring him out. When I mentioned it to him he blamed me because we let him have a sip of water when he says he's thirsty before bed and he says this is irresponsible of us (why, oh why do I teach him these words?).

So we may have to go back to rewards I guess, unless anyone has any better ideas.

I used rewards to get P to stop wetting. He couldn't be bothered to wake up, I guess, without the promises of stickers? Once he had a reward he usually managed to wake up before he peed. We also lifted him at 11pm for a while. I didn't want to give him a treat every day, so we did stickers and after a week of dryness he could pick s treat a the grocery store.

We have given up for the time being. Daily rewards worked to get him dry, but recently he's lapsed again and I was sick of changing sheets every couple of days so I have put him back in pull-ups. He saves his big morning wee for when he gets up, but there is often a little dribble in his sleep; like the puppy, I think it's when he's more tired. I didn't see the benefit of making him wear pants at night when he couldn't control it, so we'll try again in a while.

Glad it's not only here. The puppy doesn't want to go back to pull ups so we've agreed on a reward: seven dry nights and he can choose a crappy magazine. Little croc is on the same deal as she claims she wants to be dry at night (but wants gallons of water more, I suspect).
