EC and sleep
 
I love EC, and can see a light at the end of the tunnel with my almost 15mo DS. He has walked to his potty a few times now and gone pee by himself unprompted :lostit:

However, I swear it is making him wake up through the night at least twice most nights, and those times EC really makes me want to :banghead:

I just want a night with more than 4 hours of consecutive sleep. I tell myself over and over again that if he is successfully going potty on his own, not in his diaper by 24 months, it will all be worth it! But in the meantime, the wake ups and I are going to have to agree to disagree on liking each other :giggle2:

Hooray for the light! What a smart boy ;)

Tiny bladders definitely play into it. He will sometimes go 6-8 hours during the day without going though (I have no idea why), so he's definitely capable.

One day I am going to wake up and realize we have slept 8 hours uninterrupted. Today just isn't that day :) We will get there!
