  • My daughter is 3, and goes to bed at 8. I ususlly go to bed at 10 or 11. I pick her up out of her bed, and sit her on the toilet...about 5 of 7 nights she will go. Then if I wake up through the night, I will take her again to go to the bathroom. She has never awoken completely or not wanted to go back to bed...which was what I was afraid of before I had tried it.

    She hasn't had an accident in months, and now I am rarely awake in the noght to take her (due to the baby now sleeping through the night :). In the morning, she will come in and tell me she has to go. I know it may seem like baby steps again, but maybe it will be enough to get her through this "phase". Good luck Mama!

  • sometimes my 4 1/2 year old will still do this...

    i'll make sure she stops large amounts of water or other liquids after 7...she can still have drinks, but i limit the amount and make sure she goes potty before she lays in bed.

    my hubby says it's probably because their little bladders aren't fully grown into them yet... ;) it reminds me to remain patient. :D
