The Bedtime Potty Excuse

Potty training is an exciting time for parents and their toddlers. Your youngster takes one of their first exciting steps towards their “big kid” status, and parents get to say goodbye to all of the diaper related unpleasantness they’ve dealt with since baby first arrived.

But right around the time your child learns to use the potty, chances are they’ll also learn a very effective method of leaving their bedroom when they’re supposed to be sleeping. “I have to go potty” is the go-to excuse for toddlers looking for something to do when they wake up, whether it’s genuine or not.

Today, I’ll give you some tips to help you deal with this scenario in a way that is respectful of your child’s needs and will keep frivolous bathroom requests from popping up multiple times a night.
