On top of that, we finally decided to get rid of night time dipes with DS1 (3.5 yo) who had been 85% dry during the night and he decided he needed more attention so he started peeing in his bed- argh! Wet blankets, wet sheets, wet clothes, exhausted mama and daddy! I was so so so tired during the day because I was still night nursing DS3, who has also been battling eczema and would wake up because of scratching himself every three hours. It was such a hard time.... But now, two months later, DS1 is dry at night, DS2 just needs to be woken up at 10:30 and 3:00 to pee, and DS3's eczema is slowly getting under control. There WILL be a day when you no longer have "potty brain". We're slowly making it out of the potty pit, and you will too! BIG HUGS mama!
this all sounds too familiar!

a bit of an update, ds2 (3.5, and who is doing terrible at pl'ing during the day) has decided all on his own that he doesn't want a night diaper and is staying dry!! we wake them both at about 11 when we go to bed to pee. DD has often already peed her bed by that point, ds has not and will pee on the potty.

DD is however, pooping on the potty within 15 minutes of getting into bed at night. She is able to get out of bed and do her business without making a mess!! So while she is peeing the bed every night, sometimes multiple times in a night, she is doing better with her pooping, which was proving to be a stumbling block for her up til now.

I'm tempted to put a diaper back on dd after she falls asleep. Bad idea?
