Day 3 Liam was clean and dry the whole day. Grandma and Grandpa sent him helium balloons as a big reward. He has played with those... well he hasn't stopped playing with them. A very fun surprise yesterday afternoon!
Per the comments on my previous post, I didn't set alarms to check him in the night. At 5am this morning he came to me soaked and needing help getting changed. I tried my best not be frustrated as he hadn't really had anything to drink a couple hours before bedtime. He even went potty right before bed. So this night time thing may take awhile for him to figure out. I just don't want to do the pull ups and confuse him. So I'll just keep him in the thicker underpants at night along with a pad underneath. It's important for him to feel he's wet. Hopefully all of this is very temporary.
By the way, I appreciate the advice not to set alarms and check on him. I slept so much better and feel so rested. Even him waking at 5am wasn't bad. He slept after that until almost 8am. Heaven.
