Sleeping without a nappy

Hi, Doc!

At what age should one start training a child to sleep without a nappy and what is the ideal age that a child should have stoped bed wetting?

Regards,

There is no direct answer to your question. Most children stop wetting their beds anywhere from 3 to 4 and even 5 years.Some may even stop earlier than 3 years. It helps to use pull ups instead of nappies first.
