Mum stuff | Toilet training
Fast forward to today. Eme still isn't night time trained. I haven't forced the issue, but I am starting to get really worried. The problem is, she is such a deep sleeper, she just doesn't wake up. Eme was put into pull-ups at the same time as toilet training as well, and we have had a few spells of dry nights. We were so close last year and then she had to be admitted to hospital with asthma. It set her back big time. For the last week, her pull-ups have been dry. We decided to not buy another pack when they ran out two days ago.
Before I went to bed on the first night, I picked her up while she was asleep and put her on the toilet, and she went. In the morning, she woke up to a wet bed. Who knows how long she'd been sleeping in it. The bed was stripped. Sheets were washed. Let's try again. Last night before we went to bed, Andrew put her on the loo while she was asleep, and she went. Being the fretful mum, I took her to the loo again about an hour later, and once again she went. This morning, her bed was dry. Hooray!
Now, I'm not fooled for a second that she is finally getting it. She has no recollection of us taking her to the toilet at all. Which leads me to these questions that I might have to ask a professional about. I am concerned that she's not waking up, and I'm worried that she's not emptying her bladder properly during the day. I'll give it a little more time and will reassess.
Any advice you can give me in your toilet training experience would be greatly appreciated...before I tear my hair out!
