Hi! I am the mother of a 3.5 YO boy who is completely independent about the potty, sleeps 12 hours through the night without an accident.... But can't get himself out of bed and to the potty in the mornings. This would be fine, except he also tends to remove any diaper I put on him during the night, and I am washing sheets every morning.


He is a quiet waker, so even though I have a monitor on, I don't know he's up and peeing until it's too late. I honestly don't think HE knows he's peeing. He's a sleepy, snuggly waker. I've thought about putting a wool cover on him, but if he DOES make it to the potty, I want him to be able to get the pants down and GO!


Any one been there?
