For the past several nights, EA and MC have successfully slept through the night without pull-ups. This makes us another huge step towards being completely potty trained. It has been a somewhat long, slow process for us.
Saturday night they both requested to sleep in panties and I was happy to oblige, not wanting to squash their desire to do so. We’ve tried it before, but have woken up to soaked sheets.
But I did one thing differently this time.
I have started taking both girls to potty right before I go to bed myself each night. At this point, they have been already been asleep for close to three hours.
I just go into their rooms, get them out of bed, and walk them to the bathroom.
They are able to relieve their bladders without completely waking up.
I walk them back to their beds and they are back to sleep within just a few minutes.
When they were babies I did a “dream feed” right before I went to bed to help them sleep through the night. I’m thinking this is the same concept, but I’m a bit hesitant to call it a “dream pee”. No, I don’t think I’ll do that.
Sleepwalking potty training is working for us…I just hope that I am not teaching them to sleep walk by default.
