My DD is 3 (today!) and we are heavy into potty training.

She has a Hatch, which is a light/sound machine, which changes color when its "wake up time". This has been working great for the past year, she understands it, even if she hates it. (sometimes yelling at it to "TURN GREEN!!")

However, the past few weeks, she's been waking up two hours early, screaming & crying. I don't go in until the light is green, so this can be a long frustrating morning. The past few mornings, she has also been telling me that she needs to go potty; and this morning she did poop in her diaper and was then very upset about it.

So I have two 'trainings' competing against each other... sleep training vs potty training. How do I handle this?
