Nighttime Toilet Training
Nighttime toilet training entails a much different set of methods and procedures than daytime toilet training. Daytime toilet training requires education and practice on enuresis and encopresis, while nighttime training typically only involves enuresis. Also, the length of time body waste must be retained at night is much longer than during the day. Thus, it should be no surprise that children are much younger when daytime continence is achieved. This chapter will discuss these issues in detail and will provide a review of the comment, empirically based methods for nighttime toilet training.
