Reply to "BM during the night - Experiences"

At 10 months by best nights are one wakeup, but two is more usual.  On bad nights when my pouch is irritated or I ate too late I might be up and down for a couple of hours without getting back to sleep.  So, eating later at night is my worst mistake - I'm best off when there's four hours before bed and I empty the pouch well then wash and dry.  If I do eat anything, I follow Scott's advice and have a little pbutter or cheese.   My doctor said never to eat & drink at the same time.  So I'll eat and then an hour later I will drink.  Sometimes I wake up and am able to ignore the pouch and fall asleep again - you will get better at holding and the frequency will slowly drop.   Plus once you learn how to pass gas you may be able to delay getting up.  Doc said it takes a full year to get used to the new plumbing.   When I have really watery output that won't stop I use lomotil.
