Say Goodbye To Diapers

Ever since Sharlene refuses to wear her diapers at night, I have started to train her - by waking her up in the middle of the night to pee in her potty. She is too sleepy and lazy to walk to the toilet. After trying for a few nights, I managed to catch the right timing to wake her up. Sometimes hubby will remind me if I am too engross with the TV, reading newspapers or sitting in front of the computer. The right timing is between 11pm to 11.30 pm if she goes to bed before 9.30 pm. Besides that, I will also restrict her water intake before bedtime. She will empty her bladder another time if she wakes up again later and she will then jump straight on my bed and sleep in between hubby and I. After that, she will stay dry until the next morning. However, incidents of wetting the bed could happen sometimes if she’s in deep sleep and that’s the time when she’s unable to control her bladder.

She has been without her diapers for more than a month now and I have since put away all the balance diapers and pull-up pants. And I’m thinking what should I do with the remnants of it?? Keep it, give away...? Anyway, so glad that hubby doesn’t need to spend on diapers anymore. Another BIG saving here.

I cant wait for that to happen to Alycia and Sherilyn too but I'm just too lazy to potty train them at night.
Do you feed your girl milk b4 bedtime?

oh yes, she drinks 1 bottle of milk (7 oz) and about 2 oz of water just before bedtime.

You may try to train them when they show some signs of readiness. Hope they will go diaperless soon.
