Re: Potty Training at night - what are you using?
The book really recommends waiting until 22 months, no matter if the child 'seems' ready sooner. By that point, you may be able to coax her toward a different nursing routine? I weaned my daughter just a over a month before we did 3-day at 25 months. I had a fire under my butt to get both of those done with a twin pregnancy going on! My kids are water-water-water freaks, too, and their Camelbaks are their loveys! I give them their empty Camelbaks in their beds at night just so they have the cup with them.

If she's naked, she'll tell me she has to pee pee so we go sit on the potty for 10-20 minutes. Sometimes she'll start to pee in it and say, "Uh oh!" and run away and we'll try to overload her with praise for going IN the potty, other times she'll just leave and go pee on the floor :headbang: . She understands that if she has to go she's supposed to sit on her potty, I just can't get her to go in it.
(Hope I'm helping push the question and not hijacking).
ETA: I also don't know how we'd deal with no liquids close to bed time. I nurse DD to sleep every night. She also LOVES to drink water out of her cup and drinks more water than I do. She's also a bit addicted to nursing...
