It’s been 52 days since we began our Campaign. She started off strong, getting three prizes within the matter of four weeks or so. We thought we were so close to being able to ditch the Pull Ups and be in underwear full time. So. Close. Yet…so far.
Since I started back to work two and a half weeks ago, she has yet to keep her Pull Up dry. We’ve been frustrated, but not angry, mostly because she had been doing so well. Confused as to why she couldn’t keep it dry anymore. She was really trying. She would drain her bladder right before bed, she knows how to go potty by herself, so if she woke up and had to go, she could. We were at a complete loss as to what was happening and what we could do.
I think I have figured out what was (and is) happening, and if I’m right I don’t think there is anything we can do.
Eirinn’s bedroom is right beside our en suite bathroom. Her bed is against the wall. I wake up at 6:30 am to shower and get ready for the day while the rest of the house is still asleep. Do you see where I’m going with this? Think 3rd grade sleepovers.
I’m pretty sure Eirinn hears the shower running in her sleep, rendering her bladder defenseless. I’m pretty sure the sound of the water running makes her pee.
What on earth can we do to solve this? I can’t wait until she wakes up to have my shower; I start work at 8. Her bed is already in the only spot available for it. The other shower in the house is beside Avery’s room and would wake her up, plus all my stuff is in our en suite (convenience and efficiency are key).
Are we stuck? Is she destined to be a pants-wetter for all of eternity? Any suggestions?
