Q.

Waking up at 04:00 in the morning

My 2 year old wakes up at about 4:00 in the morning lately. And then she wants to talk or go to the toilet (she' s potty training at the moment and doig very well). But once on the toilet she takes off all her clothes and I mean all her clothes. She will not sit on the toilet once all is off. So my questions: 1) Why does she wake up at 4 lately? I' ve got a problem with her as well that she drinks up to 3 bottles a night. I want to take the bottle away, but just nervous a bit. And 2) why does she take off all her clothes when going to the loo? It' s all new to her I think and she feels so good when she wees or poos in the toilet.

Your little girl has got into the habit of waking up early. It is a stage she is going through. She seems to be very happy. I can't answer your question about the reason why she takes off all her clothes when going to the toilet. This too is probably just a passing phase.
