Tiring to potty train...

We were almost celebrate the joy of En En to be diaperless by now, on her 27 months old but everything turn into a nightmare. Everyone is so piss off with her teerrible behaviour and mummy also got to give in and delay her potty training plan.

Remember a post titled "Mummy whacked the little butt"? We still have this episode on every few alternate days and apparently En En was crying and screaming for no reason! Be it daytime, night time or mid-night!!! Lately, she wants Ah Mah madly and refuse to let daddy and mummy get into the bedroom with her! This is really too much... but we still have to distract her with lots of stories, new ideas in order for her to forget about what she was demanding previouesly. Otherwise, everyone of us don't have to sleep! Ah Mah said becasue En En is jealous with No.2 inside mummy's tummy and she doesn't feel mummy loves her so she picks Ah Mah to accompany her. Mummy tried so many things to get close to her and never whack her or scold her (since No.2 will cramps inside the tummy and kicks mummy when mummy feels angry or irritated), but still she chose Ah Mah! So heartache...

Back to potty train, En En is diaperless during daytime and during nap. Mummy is so amaze about her strong bladder control, or perhaps she has bigger bladder?? She can go all dry at night for 5-8 hours! That's so amazing and mummy only use 1-2 modern cloth diaper for the whole night till next morning. Before this, she will refuse to wear any diaper and wake up at midnight to pee with mummy's help. Ever since mummy tummy got bigger and she requests and cries for Ah Mah to come over to put her on potty at midnight as she refuses to come doen from the bed... we decided to let her to stay in the diaper at night. Mummy felt so bad as we already trained her to have the awareness to pee at night and she's able to tell us to wee wee during her sleep, we consider that as a very good improvement. But seeing that she has this ridiculous request and screaming for Ah Mah at midnight, we have no choice to turn a deaf ear when she murmur at midnight. Feel so so so bad, but if mummy or daddy offer to help her to the potty at midnight, she will starts crying and screaming till Ah Mah comes and by then everyone in the house will be awaken! So, if you are in mummy's shoe.. what will you do??

I agree with Bryan and Brandon's Mama. My Jing become like this also when Yang is beside me. Nowboth of them still diapering at night time. Only with MamyPoko, that can tahan whole night wee wee. What to do? wake them up? they will cry and scream to sleep...

Lucas just started potty training and he still wets the MamyPoko at night. Not time for us yet...

Sharine - I remember my Ahma telling me that I used to wake up at night to pee. She put a potty in the room so I can do it myself without waking up everyone! Wanna try this?

I think most kids will react like this when there's another sibling coming soon. But still, there's nothing much we can do about it except giving the first one more attention, even if by someone else. But she's good la, potty trained at night liao, my kids still on diapers at night leh...

slavemom said...

Well done, En En! She can go diaperless at night. But I guess u hv no choice but to let her wear a diaper in order for every1 to get a good night's sleep. How abt letting her sleep with Ah Mah for the time being?
