Nighttime Potty Breaks

We are trying to come up with a schedule to prevent our two year old from getting up at 3am to use the restroom. While we are excited she is not wetting the bed, we are still pooped in the morning from the break in our sleep. Any suggestions?

  • actually I think its great that she knows she has to go. Have you already had her peeing b/f she goes to sleep??
    It could just take time for her bladder to mature enough that she can go all night.

  • MamiJaAyla hello and thanks for taking the time to post! We do have her using the potty before bed. I am thinking that she may be consuming too much within the last hours of going to sleep..?? But she is on a schedule with getting up in the night and she can't turn the light on so she has to wake us up. During the day, she goes when she has to and handles it all herself...LittleMissIndependant lol
