Try This Tuesday

our son is 10 but with this disability he still is not toilet trained overnight. during the day he is 95% dry when taken on a regular time schedule. yahoo! but at night we use pullups. being 10 yrs old, you can imagine his bladder can hold alot! so when he has an accident at night (ie overflow) it is a big deal.

my hubby came up with the idea of waking joe up early when my hubby gets up, usually 5am. taking him to potty and then putting him back to bed. so far the mornings we've remember to do it it has worked out great. no more accidents! we are still hoping he will one day be dry all night long, but until then this works for us.

for more try it tuesday suggestions, go over to 5 minutes for special needs. you'll find great ideas from all the moms and dads.

What a great way to solve your problem! We are still using pull-ups at night for our son, who is 6 1/2. He is getting more consistent at initiating going, so we are seeing progress, but I am looking forward to no more pullups!

Thanks for participating, and sorry it took me so long to pop on over.
