My kids really liked the Once Upon a Potty video. It's a bunch of kids singing about going on a potty with video clips of them happily singing on the potty. Sounds silly, but it's a pretty catchy...

I feel for you. My DS was up every 45 minutes to 2 hours until he was, like, 3 years old! But we did have some phases where I did get sleep. When he was really young and it was warm out, I had him...
