Motor Mouth is potty trained but is having some issues staying dry at night. These are my adventures in helping Motor Mouth achieve nighttime dryness on a regular basis.

A Dry Night

We had a successful dry night! No trying. Just pure, spontaneous success!

Yesterday, Motor Mouth woke up and announced that he did not pee in his pull up. We could not be more proud of him. This morning he did not have the same success but that's okay. This means there is hope.

Since my last post, I spoke to Motor Mouth's birth mother about his need for pull ups at night. Turns out, Motor Mouth's birth mom, her brother and sister wet their beds. Some of them until they were about 10 years old. It is nice to know it is genetic.

We don't make a big deal about the bedwetting. If his pull up leaks, he just gets his sheets off his bed and puts them in front of the washer.

Another area of progress is daytime wetting. Motor Mouth would often moisten his pants at school or when playing. His bladder seemed to not be able to hold much and he would not want to tear himself away from school or play. I spoke to his teachers, explaining that when he says he has to go, he HAS to go. Motor Mouth has gotten much better at regulating himself. Now, his pants no longer smell of pee every day!

Progress all around.
