Those of you that know me are probably thinking, POTTY TRAINING?? Seeing as though I have a 6 year old, a 4 year old and an almost 5 month old...who could I be talking about? I mean obviously my 5 month old is not ready to be potty trained and surely my 4 and 6 year old already are...
No, my 5 month old is not ready to be potty trained and yes my 4 year old is totally potty trained...oh, yes, I guess that leaves my 6 year old you are wondering about.
MO is of course in underwear ALL DAY EVERYDAY! But at night is a different story, or really anytime he sleeps. He still sleeps in pull ups at night and every morning when he wakes up it is soaked! There is NEVER a morning it isn't soaked. He does not drink a ton or near bedtime, this is not the issue. MS drinks more than any child I know and he has been wearing underwear at night for a while now. MS even wakes up at least once, maybe twice for drinks during the night and he still stays dry. When MS wakes in the morning I have to make him go potty, if I didn't he still wouldn't have to go then. But then I have MO that is 6 and cant stay dry at night EVER. We have talked to him about this and told him that if and when he needs to go potty he needs to get up and go like mommy and daddy do. He tells us he never knows when he has to go or even when he goes.
This worries me a little, I mean what will end this and make him like a normal kid that sleeps in underwear?? I don't see what will fix this or what I can do to help fix it. He ALWAYS goes to the potty before bed, ALWAYS, but this doesn't matter or help. And you would think that if this was something he could help or fix he would seeing as though his LITTLE brother sleeps in underwear at night and he doesn't!
