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.

2 Months DRY!!!

One day, the switch flipped. Motor Mouth has been DRY all night for two months straight. There have been about 3 accidents in that time but overall, DRY NIGHTS!!!

No bed alarms, no waking up at midnight to go potty, no promises, no threats, no extreme measures. Just a couple of parents that kept buying pull ups and not making a big deal about pull up leaks. We let nature run its course.

I remembered reading that the best thing we could do as parents was to be supportive and not make a big deal about the wet sheets. When Motor Mouth would tell us he wet the bed, we just reminded him to put the wet sheets in front of the washer. No big deal. Just mater-of-fact.

In our case, it was helpful to know that Motor Mouth's birth family all wet their beds until they were eight or ten years old. It was genetic. In time, Motor Mouth would outgrow it. And he did.

NO MORE PULL UPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
