we are kinda of a weird family when my dd was 2 her bed time was 10pm and then my husband would wake her up at 2am bring her to the potty and put her back in bed and then at 7 am i would bring her and then back in bed and she would sleep until 9-10 we had her walk every time well mostly everytime if she was crying we would pick her up.It took about 2 weeks before she would wake up and go herself and now at 3 most nights she just sleeps until 7 goes and then goes back to sleep
I didn't wake DD at night to potty train. She started waking up dry at around 2 1/2, so there was no need to. Rotten turkey didn't potty train until 4 1/2, though, despite all my efforts.
I got lucky, DD was waking up with dry diapers in the morning and shortly after, just over winter break she went from diapers to fully potty trained! we stopped putting her in diapers when going to bed and she hasn't had an accident yet. She's almost 4 though. It took a long while for her to be ready but she got there. It would just depend on hat works for your child. Families have lots of different schedules and times that work for them.
At age 2 we tried to stick to a 9pm bed time but it usually ended up more like 9:30-10pm
Potty training and bed time don't have much to do with each other. Just make sure that she goes potty before bed and take her to go potty before you go to bed.
my son is 3 and we had a tough time with training...but we put him to bed at 8 or 830 and my hubby still has to wake him up at 5 when he leaves for work to go...otherwise he has an accident..in the beginning we used diapers overnight...good luck i know how tough a transition it can be!
I put my 3 year old to bed at 9pm. When she was two it was 8 or 830 but she kept waking up at like 4 or 5 inthe morning without fail so we moved it back a bit and she sleeps til 7 now. As for potty training, she resisted everything until a few months ago, then she just did it all the time. Its frustrating. My friend's daughter is almost 4 and still not trained. They do it when they are ready.
