The Next Step: Potty Training at Night


My daughter has mastered potty training during the day. She does not need a diaper, she tells us when she needs to use the bathroom and has gone more than a year since her last major accident. That is during the day, though. At night – and naptime – she needs to wear a diaper because she will likely go to the bathroom. She complains every time we put it on, saying she hates wearing it and begs us not to wear one. We fight back because any time we’ve given in and let her try to sleep without a diaper, she ends up wetting the bed. We expect this. Potty training at night is a different animal than during the day. Our daughter is asleep, and her body is not trained to wake her up if she has to go. As a result, she still needs a diaper.

Potty Training with Consistency and Repetition


The first day of potty training did not go well. My wife and I told my then two-year-old daughter that we felt like she needed to walk over to the toilet, pull down her underwear and use the bathroom. For us adults, it seemed incredibly simple. To a toddler, not so much. Despite asking my daughter almost every five minutes if she needed to use the bathroom, she said she was okay. She would then pee on the floor. It was an imperfect process that showed its flaws.
