I totally understand your frustration. When one isn't sleeping it distrupts everyone else. *SIGH* I don't have much advice... I'd say since it seems like he's using going potty and losing his animals as a way to get attention during the night that ignoring the behavior would work best, but since your little ones are sharing a room that's pretty much impossible. UGH short of moving your DD into your room until the phase is over, I don't know what else to do! GL and KUP!!!

Thank you! We made his animal a bed today, so I am hoping that maybe he will be okay with the idea of his animal having it's own bed!

well he liked making it, and the idea of it.. but when it came down to actually leaving his animal in the bed.. did not like it. i keep making little references to it though hoping maybe with time he will warm up.

My kids wake at night they are about the same age. I started telling them what time it was and telling them we don't get up until 6, right now it is 4 that means back to bed. I just walk them to the potty, then tuck then in, and tell them good night. No water, no toys, no prayers again ect. Although my kids usually wake up and think it is time to be up and watch a movie or something.

It sounds like you usually have a great sleeper, maybe he will grow out of it. Good luck!
