Q.

" Potty Training during Night" 

My son will be 4 end of August. I am worried that there might be something wrong with him. He is 100% potty trained during the day. But still needs to sleep with his nappy at night. Even at school he sleeps for an hour without a nappy. We have tried everything but he wets the bed every night. Please help!

Your son is still too young to be actively treated for his bed wetting problem. Try the start chart system first where your child will earn praise and a star each morning if his bed is dry. Treat wet beds in a matter-of -fact way and do not blame him if his bed is wet.
