This is the sign of a household that is attempting to potty train at night.
So far, it hasn’t gone so well. Violet wets the bed at least once per night and becomes irate if I suggest she use the potty. I think she resents the interrupted sleep (so do I!) and acts like she’d almost prefer to lay on wet sheets rather than get up and take care of the situation.
Last night we were up at least six times. It all blurred together at some point. Only one of those times was she wet, but every time she wakes up I try to get her to use the potty, which is in her bedroom. I have to talk to her in a low, soothing voice — like talking to a skittish horse, I’m guessing — or else she’ll start crying, wailing and gnashing her teeth. At that point, even if I can get her on the potty, nothing is going to be deposited.
Every time I have ever started a new phase with Violet (getting rid of the swaddle, getting rid of the pacifier, converting the crib to a toddler bed, daytime potty training, etc.) I have doubted my decision at some point. Of course, I’m doubting this one now. I have vowed to give it two weeks (it has been less than one week so far) and then reevaluate the situation.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I may not follow your advice, but I would still appreciate receiving it!
