Finally we can save money on Kylie’s disposable diapers. For the past 3 nights, Kylie decided not to wear her disposable diaper to sleep. Is it late or early for her to finally master this new skill? When did you train your child or when are they ready for it?
This is a big milestone for her to achieve on her own accord. She refused to wear her disposable diaper 3 days ago and said this to us “I’m a big girl now. I don’t want to wear diaper to sleep anymore”.
We were afraid she would wet on her rather new mattress. We bought her an expensive single mattress about 6 months ago. So we asked her to promise us that she would not wet her bed and she would wake up to pee on her potty. And she did as promise. We are so proud of you Kylie.
Day 1: She cried and I carried her to her potty to pee. After a few hours, she cried again and I carried her to the potty and she said she didn’t want to pee. But she peed on me and on the floor.
Day 2: She told me she wanted to pee and I carried her to the potty. 3 times.
Day 3: She told me she wanted to pee and I carried her to the potty. 2 times.
Actually, hubby and I planned to potty train Kylie after this coming Chinese New Year. We planned to get the mattress plastic sheet, like those found underneath the hospital bed sheet, to protect the mattress from getting wet. Else her mattress will be smelly and won’t last long.
She was listening to us while we were discussing this topic. She is going to be three and a half years old next month and should be able to sleep through the night without wetting her bed. She already knew how to pee during daytime, without assistance, since she was 22 months old.
I recalled the first time she achieved this milestone. I left her alone in the room playing and when I returned, she told me to look at the potty and on the floor. I saw the wet potty and asked her what that was. She said she “wee wee” and missed. Hence a few drops of urine on the floor. I was so happy of her achievement, clapped my hands and praised her a lot.
