I would stick to nappies at night for now, it takes much longer for children to learn to be dry at night and may upset her if she wakes wet after doing so well in the day. Generally it takes about another few months for night times to be dry too. Good luck!!

thanks for the quick response she goes to bed at 9 and really just wanted someone else to say the same. it does make sense the more i think of it. think im trying to get her to run rather than walk lol

You only started her today, and were thinking about leaving the nappy off tonight?

Let her go a few weeks at least. If she has an accident, it may set her back because you pushed too soon.
I did it with my son, but that was forced because I was on holiday in NY with no nappies, I was lucky. :)

Yes, If she has an accident at night it may set her back to the point of not wanting to be without her nappy at all.

Keep the nappes on at nght as above may be upset f wake up wet. My sster is potty training her little girl, she has had a few little accidents but usually quite good she took her out today down to the corner shop wearing her "big girls pants" and she had a little accident in the shop the one behind the counter was very rude and told her to get her aoutside but then the womens husband said not to worry about it these things happen
#6
oh my god how rude was he, i know the more i think about it i feel quite bad i just seemed to think that you stopped altogether, i was on a web sit last night which confirmed that but i bought the gina ford potty book today and started to get confused. thanks for the advise

There's no need to feel bad about it. Parenting is a learning process that never ends.
You will be perfect at some things, and not so great at others.

As long as you are willing to learn, then your daughter will be fine. :)

Don't feel bad, it's a learning curve.................................these little ones don't arrive with a manual!!

when i potty trainned my daughter i put pull up on at night . when she mastered the day she trainned her self at night and her pulls were dry for more then a week i put knickers on her at night x

3 kids, 2 potty trained, 1 who's only 1, no books and not dropped one of them yet. \o/

My girls used to wear pull ups at night but eventually they were coming off dry in the morning and it was time to take them away, I also used to let them wear big girl pants in the house but would always put a pull up on them for going out so they weren't embarrassed if they had an accident, guaranteed they always needed a pee on the bus.

Not being funny, but why is your 2 year old going to bed at 9 o'clock? ...I've got 6 kids, and 9 o'clock for a 2 year old is too late IMO , and if anything will put her into a deep sleep quicker and will have a negative effect on her nightime training. *Waits for the onslaught*
#13
Thanks SS x

For some reason my little boy took no training, at just over one & a half he just walked up to the toilet tip toed & went, I think he was copying me.
We never used a potty & he just gets up & goes in the night, he's wee'd the bed twice though after lots of juice.
He's two now & just sits on the toilet & we haven't even had to use the special adapter thingy we brought for the toilet.
Ive got a funny video of when he first went & we were all laughing while he tried to get his willy high enough over the toilet :lol:

my daughter gets up approx 8am every morning and has no sleep at all during the day, and to be honest its still a struggly to get her to go to bed at 9pm. up until 6 months ago she slept from 7.30 till 8am and also had 2 hrs sleep in the afternoon. dont know what happened but would love her to go down earlier, you must be lucky

You know how much sleep she needs.

My son went to bed extremely late as a toddler too, kids are different.
At age 9, he was going bed at around 10.30, and still goes to bed around that time at age11.

have to agree 9pm is very late................


my kid's bedtime is 9pm and they wake up around 9am..

before when i put them down at 7pm, they'd be up at about 6am- i prefer the 9-9 as i get lot of stuff done after their bedtime (ironing etc) and a whole load done before they get up!..anybody else find this is the case?-

but its easier for me only cos im lucky enough to be a full time mum-at-home (let the hubby do the hard graft earning the dosh!) i dont think i could juggle the kids and employment and housework like many (very brave) women do .. but saying that, maybe when you're thrown into it, you jst accept it as a way of life :thinking:

anyway, re. potty training- i used gina ford, kids were dry in a matter of days (3months on, night nappy is still on after a very very long dry phase-) but apparently boys take longer for the night time thing (toddler)

thanks very much, it would be good if she went down earlier but as you say every child is different, when we try to get her down earlier it ends up that she stays up later so whats the point!!

well i thought that i was very lucky as my daughter only had 2 accidents yesterday, put the night nappy on as advised ( thank god i would have been up loads during the night) got her on the potty first thing where she did both pee and poo ( couldnt believe it ) but now since then she has peed the floor 3 times and now just went back on the potty. i know it takes time but she does understand where to go and she tells us to clap when she does the toilet in the potty think she just cant be bothered too lol

Just stick with it.

I remember being at my mums house in the Caribbean, and my son went without a nappy because all her floors are tiled, so it didn't matter if he had an accident.

He pooed on the floor, and one of my mums dogs ate it. He was upset, but it spurred him into pooing in the toilet from then on.

I have to say, my kids were potty-trained, whilst I was in Australia, tiled floors also, many incidents.
you'll have a few mis-haps, don't be dis-heartened keep it up, there'll be good and bad days, a few weeks from now, this episode in parenthood will be forgotten.

TANTRUMS, that's what you have to prepare yourself for!!!!!!!!!!!!!


funny you should say that my daughter was a complete diva and VERY demanding however since the day before her 2nd birthday she has been very good completly different hopefully she will keep this up too... not that i ask for much but its like day and night since then lol
