We toilet trained our 2 yr 8 month old 3 months ago - she was dry and clean in 2 weeks - but since then she wakes in the night screaming and is only consoled in our bed - she will not go back into her own bed - before this she was a 7pm to 7am sleeper - no problems - has anyone else had this problem? We have tried leaving a light on - making sure she wees straight before bed - now she seems to wake every night and doesnt want the potty just to be in our bed - which she has never been bothered about before - HELP !!!!!!!

Would she understand star charts? My dd was older when she started this nearer 3.5 yo but I would bring her back to her bed and settle her every time she did this. Sometimes I slept on the end of her bed. I introduced a chart with stars for every night she stayed in her own bed and after a week she went back to her normal routine. Is your dd night dry as well as day trained?
