DD is 25 months and has been potty training for the last 6 weeks. In 6 weeks we've had a total of 3 accident so I'm very, very prod of her. Ds is 3 and although he's potty trained he still has a nappy on at night and most mornings the nappy is at bursting point he's weed that much. I thought dd would just follow in ds footsteps until Sat night that is. Every ½ hour or so through the night I'd hear dd shoiuting 'mummy I want a wee wee'. So I go into her room take her nappy off, sit her on the potty she'd wee every time. Put the nappy back on and put her back in bed. I even left the potty in her room so she could do it herself because she goes to the loo herself during the day but no, she wanted mummy. The last time I remember looking at the clock it was 4:38 sunday morning and I'd had no sleep. How do other people get round this problem?? Last night she wasn't given as much juice and I must admit she slept alot better but that may have just been a case of her being that tierd from the night before!!!!

definitely the cutting down on juice will be the answer. Also, when she gets bored of the new routine and novelty wears off she will not bother so much. When she wants you in the night, try to keep the lighting low and don’t talk to her (too much - obviously don’t ignore her!), make it as dull and boring a trip as possible and try to keep her half asleep. My DD1 was a terror for waking up and turning night time into an elaborate toilet trip with a little chat etc. and when I stopped the fun, kept the lighting down and just made it as dull as possible, she soon got bored and stopped seeing it as a way to have a little chat with mum.
Stick with it, it should get easier soon

You should see the bags under my eyes today. I was in bed at 8 last night . DD has been an absolute gem toilet training. Ds was a total nightmare.
