How do you train your children to sleep diaper-free?
Dot is already diaper-free during her waking hours, we are still trying to train her to be off the diaper during her sleep. The worst thing is that there were a few times that I forgot to put on her diapers when she was napping.
To prevent Dot’s bed from getting wet, I even tried making our own waterproof mattress protector by sewing together the comforter and the waterproof material I bought at Spotlight. It can prevent seepage but it can be quite warm for an afternoon nap.
So far, Dot only woke up once in the middle of the night and asked me to bring her to the toilet.
Recently, I started to train Dot to sleep diaper-free during the day. I use Pupsilk DreamMat mattress protector (0.7m by 1m) under the bedsheet of Dot’s junior bed (see images A and B below) so that Dot will not kick off the protector while she is sleeping.
Before she sleeps, I will instruct her again that she needs to wake up on her own to go to the toilet. As expected, she wets her bed, wakes up on her own and walks to me.
The good thing now is that after using Dream Mat, the mattress is still dry and clean and I only have to wash the bedsheet. The protector is thin and soft to touch and surprisingly very absorbent. It absorbs water very quickly and the underside membrane prevents the seepage.
Would love to learn a few practical tips from you on how to train a child to sleep diaper-free if you have any to spare.
