I put Maddie down at about 8:30 tonight. At 8:50, she started yelling that she needed to go potty. So I ran in and carried her to the potty- nothing. She always goes immediately. If it's a false alarm, she usually says "no teetee" or "all done."
I kept asking her if she was done and she said no. I tried taking her off the potty a couple of times and she FREAKED out. So I sat with her (in silence) for 10 minutes. Then I left the bathroom for another 10 minutes and she sat in there by herself. Nothing.
I carried her back to bed sobbing and saying "I need to go teetee" over and over. I let her do that for about 1 minute, then went back in and told her we were going to the potty, and I was going to count to 10, and then we were going back to bed. Again, nothing, although she is not freaking out anymore.
What in the world? Why would she feel the urge to go so strongly if she doesn't need to go? I feel so bad for her, but I can't let her sit on the potty all night long either!
