I don't think they do make a size 7! What I did for the longest time for Laney was dbl up her size 5 dipes, inner dipe was turned down at the top, and then the outer dipe pulled up high so it could absorb what the inner dipe wouldn't. I just switched her to a 3t-4t EasyUp, and surprisingly, they haven't leaked yet! When Cadi wets the bed it's the same thing...she's just so deeply asleep. She's been dry every night since my first reply btw. I hope you and the urologist can help Claire be more aware of what's going on. Do the CoolAlert type PullUps help at all? They never did much for Cadi.
Uh, Ben's already dry through the night. Go figure. He even wore big boy underwear out on a walk the other day and he stayed completely dry the whole time we were out of the house. Although, last night he fell into the toilet, bum first. I don't know why he decided to get up on the toilet without me, but he went to sit down and the potty seat wasn't there. He was soaked up to his middle, but somehow managed to pull himself out. IDK how he did it!
Lol Ben! Laney is terrified of the flushing sound on her Winnie the Pooh potty. I've got it turned off, but she still won't go near it. She IS, however, reading Cadi's potty book daily and telling me that she's going to sit on the "big white potty"...but won't if I suggest it At least I know she's thinking about it and psyching herself up. Yay!
Ugh, y'all are making me nervous!
Although we're getting much closer to daytime potty training (yesterday she went from 8am to 6pm without an accident), A wakes up soaking wet every morning. And still, if we don't make her sit down and go every 30 minutes, there's an accident. I think that mostly means that I am trained.
I had bladder issues as a little girl, and can clearly remember both wetting my pants during the day - at school! - and at night. I remember having dreams that I was running around looking for a bathroom, and when I found one I would sit down and use it... but of course that really meant I was wetting my bed. I had surgery twice to look at my bladder. I think this was before ultrasound was really good, and that was the only way of seeing if I had a problem. The diagnosis was simply a "small bladder". Anyway, I grew out of it... eventually. The last time I wet my pants during the day I was 9, and the last time I wet the bed overnight I was about 11. And I'm so, so afraid I passed my small bladder on to A. I really would hate to have her experience the same humiliation that I did.

Had to share with someone and I knew you would all understand! Ethan POOPED in the potty for the very first time today!!!!! *jumping for joy*! He's getting there - today:
in underwear at 7am
4 false alarms
Peed in the potty at 8:30
put him in a pull up to go to grocery store at 8:45
9:45 - He peed in the pullup because we didn't get home soon enough (right in front of the front door), put him back in underwear
Accident (in the bathroom) at 10:30
3 false alarms
Peed in potty 11:00
Pooped in the potty at 11:30
went down for nap around noon with a pullup on.
2 false alarms between 12 and 1pmijng
The false alarms are driving me nuts, but he must be learning, right? That's pretty good so far I think for his first day trying all morning!
Harmony, don't even worry about it! Second kids are easier to train, so I've heard, because big bro or sis kind of leads the way. Claire started training pretty early, but she took a lot longer than Ben to stop having accidents, and she still wets in the night. She also has bladder issues.
I think that Ben's actually done with the training. He stays dry in big boy underwear all day, and has been dry every morning for about 2 weeks.
If you're finding that it's a ton of work and that Joey isn't as keen as you initially thought, probably best to lay off for a while. A kid who's really ready should not be too difficult to train. Pushing too hard can backfire in your face. This seems to be about the age when some moms and dads start to feel pressure from friends/relatives/us! to start training whether or not their LO seems ready. If Joey's interested, then he's probably ready. Tons and tons and tons of praise (like, go overboard with the praise) is what motivated my kids the most. They just wanted to make DH and I happy.
