Ok folks. I need the moms (and dads) out there to help me out. I need an intervention. Bonham still wears a pull up at night. I am sorry son. I know, I know….this internet stuff will be out there for years to come. So as your 12 years old friends are googling you, they will read this. Sorry about that. Just tell them to suck it. Anyway….
He is 6. And he has been potty trained for like a million years. But he wears a pull up at night. We keep waiting for the “3 dry nights” and it isn’t happening. The kid drinks water like he is going on a safari. I try limiting it, but homeboy is thirsty at night! We have successfully limited it to where he no longer drinks at bedtime or during reading…but limiting it much before then is just not going to happen. He often has sports that take him pretty close to bedtime. We talk about him getting up to go at night, but he doesn’t ever do it. I know part of the issue has to be that he doesn’t wake up, and I know the pull up aids in that. But dude…..we went through like 4 years of not sleeping. I am soooooo not ready to just ditch the pull up and disrupt sleep with wet sheets. Is that my only option? Do I have to just bite the bullet and deal with a week of no sleep and wet sheets? I have the bed protectors you can buy, so maybe it won’t be a full sheet change every night. Still….I’m scared. Talk me through this….is it time? Do I need to just try? I know the answer is yes….so maybe this post is just to enlist cheerleaders. Tell me it will be ok and that it will be quick. Please!!!!
