this was key to our overnight successes.... she was 2 1/2 when we started PT. daytime was no problem: we had a schedule, every 2 hours we visited the bathroom.

night time was different. she would get her last drink around 7, go before bed, then one of us would wake her up at 11 or 12 and put her on the pot, then back in bed. then she was ok until morning.

we only had to do this routine for about 2-3 months. then her muscle control grew/ developed and she's been fine since.

(and there's nothing about knitting while the child is sitting that could make you a bad mom!!! )
