So, I am trying to have my 5yr old off the night time diaper and I am not having any success, yet. I stop the fluids around 6pm, I make him go to the bathroom as many times as possible before going to sleep, and then I follow my routine: I have to wake him up at 10pm, 12am, 2am, 4am and 6am otherwise he just doesn't wake up. I have to take him to the bathroom, he doesn't even notice I take him out of his bed.. he doesn't even remember he went to the bathroom... From 6sm to 7.30am when we get up, he is wet because I don't take him between that time because I always think he will be kind of up by then and will go to the bathroom, but NO!!! or he also gets wet when I don't hear the alarm and I don't get up to take him and skip one of scheduled times I have created for him.
What can I do?
He has extremely heavy sleep!!! I mean I take him and can't even wake him up so he knows what we are doing. How can I help him?
I am tired, waking up every 2 hrs is no fun, but I will keep doing it as long as I need to.
p.s. he stopped using the daytime diaper at 2.5yrs and it tok him only 2 weeks, amazing. Now the real challenge is waking him, so he can learn to do it by himself at nigh...
