Q.

Pottytraining

My son of 2½  years was recently potty trained. It goes extremely well except for the night. I can wake him 2 times a night to go to the potty but he still wets his bed. I normally give him his last drink at 6:30 pm. Is that to late?

This is very common especially with little boys. Your son is still very young, give him a lot more time and in the meantime let him wear nappies or trainer pants at night.Keep on encouraging him to use the potty, but waking him only once at night will be enough.
