Okay, so the issue is not that he is still wetting the bed. I'm totally okay with that. The prolem is that I cannot get the darn thing on his bottom without a fight. our bedtime routine is supper at 5, bath at 5.30, some chill time and visit with the uncle and maybe a little bit of tv until 7, them a cup of choclate milk, a story, (glowstick & pullup), snuggles, and goodnight.
Lately it's been taking anywhere from 30 mintes to over an hour to get his pull up on. It doesn't seem to matter if I do it after the bath or after the story. I've offered 2 different brands of diapers and pull ups as an option. We have a sticker chart for awsesome bedtimes, and he doesn't seem to make the connection between being rewarded for his behavior and his behavior. In his head they are two seperate events, if that makes any sense. (I do suspect there might be special needs going on, and will crosspost this).
He insists he doesn't need it on, that he doesn't wet the bed, that the dog peed in it and that's why it is wet in the mornings. He screams that he hates me, that he doesn't need anybody, that he is going to run away. If I fold his arms in and just hold him he bites, or SCREAMS that I'm breaking his bones. He'll bounce on the bed, or crawl underneath it. If i let him go to bed without it and wake him up every two hours and put him on the potty he won't ever go in the potty, but invariably ends up peeing in his bed.
We've always had to take things slow and give him time to get used to ideas, but this is something I don't know how to deal with.
