My kids are still in diapers! I know it sounds terrible but I promise it’s only at night. I had a moment where I had to seriously consider and ask for tips for potty training at night. It just felt so difficult to accomplish.
Potty training at night is one of the hardest things I’ve had to deal with in parenting. I much rather change diapers every morning than to have to train my cranky kid to use the bathroom at night. It took us longer than I thought it would to just potty train. The best part was having them trained at the same time other than that I felt like it would never happen. My kids are only 13 months apart so this actually worked pretty well. I really think it’s time to get the night time potty training out the way too.
I believe that night time potty training is difficult for me because our kids struggle to sleep some days. It gets overwhelming to put them down and then have to wake them to be sure they go potty. Plus I’m training two at the same time again.
We recently went to Mexico and I forgot the diapers! I was worried because Mexico can get very cold at night. While they don’t always wake up wet in the morning I knew the chance of it being extra cold wasn’t going to work in our favor. There I was staring at them sleeping hoping they wouldn’t have an accident. I wasn’t going to let our vacation turn sour so I thought, if I can survive this weekend with no diapers then we can totally do without from now on!
