One of my three year old twin girls has recently developed a strong dislike for wearing her diaper at bedtime. She is potty trained during the day, but needs to wear one at night. What could cause this sudden onset and what do I do to get her to wear one without throwing a fit?

Nighttime Potty Training

When potty training, it is often best to let the child lead the way. If a child refuses a diaper at night, it could be time for nighttime training. A few nights of wet pajamas often trigger nighttime bladder control. Keep extra pajamas, underpants and sheets on hand for quick changes if necessary. If after a week, the child still wets each night, encourage diapers again. Sometimes, children who refuse diapers will accept a pull-up training pant.
