Big girl already!

A milestone for Caylee.

The night of 17th Nov 2013, she declares "I am big girl already. At night no need to wear diaper already!"

Actually for weeks preceding, she has been taking out her diaper in the middle of the night and sleeping diaper-less the rest of the night. Sometimes even pant-less. Reason being she takes her diaper out to go to toilet and then wets her pants. Then she takes out her pants and then goes back to bed. So effectively, she is pee-ing in her pants.

So, we tried.

Before going to bed she goes to toilet 2 times. Once being just before lights out.

This morning, I saw her sleeping on her mattress nearer to the potty and her potty was full.

Meaning she woke up by herself in the middle of the night, went to the potty and then went back to sleep. All on her own!

What a difference for this girl! She is really independent in her own way and knows her capabilities. I have never heard of a child who decides for herself the right time to go diaperless at night. It was little effort on my side. I just let her be and she did it on her own!
