Ugh. Help!

So I started pt ds nov 1st and he pretty much instantly got it. Took about two weeks for the pooping but otherwise been fine since. I didn't even have to do night training he would naturally hold it long enough with maybe one night time accident a week, sometimes less. But he has peed the bed every night for the last 5 days. Including twice the other night. What can I do? The other night when he woke wet I changed his pants and we went potty again just in case he needed to. But if he wakes at all at night he is AWAKE. So he then proceeded to stay up for two and a half hours before going back to sleep. And i took him potty again and he still wet the bed again. So I kind of want to take him potty in the middle of the night when I get up to go, but I don't bc I know he will be up for hours. so do I just tough it out and take him and hope he eventually gets it to just go back to sleep? or is there something else I can try? We already stop all drinks two hours before bed but what else can I try? Any advice would be appreciated!

Re: Ugh. Help!

I'm in the same boat. Been changing PJ's for a week now. Just decided to become more vigilant at monitoring fluids before night time. Anyway, Check out this night time training podcast from Jamie Glowacki:

Are you taking him to the bathroom when you wake him in the middle of the night? If you are, I would suggest changing that part of the night routine. Have the potty or a wide mouthed cup (like a red solo cup) in the room with a night light on, wake him lightly, pull down the pants (go commando style), aim the cup, say "go pee", pull up pants, and put him back in bed. Try taking him twice at night, maybe 10 and 2, like she suggests. You're already with holding liquids so at least that's a head start!
