Losing my patience

My youngest is turning 3 in a month. She's been potty trained since like march. For months she was dry both day and night, then suddenly couldn't make it through the night anymore. Whatever, bought pull-ups for nighttime. The last few weeks suddenly she's peeing all over the house. She'll have to change her clothes like 5 times a day. She's not stopping what shes doing to go to the bathroom and holding it too long I think cause err are times during the day she makes it too. Ugh it's just so frustrating ! What gives??? She urinates frequently also. She had two accidents in the floor within the hour and just went again on the toilet.

  • Urinating that much can be a sign of Type 1 diabetes among other medical conditions. Wouldn't hurt to get her checked out. If nothing is medically wrong the REMINDED her to go to the bathroom often.

  • My ped told me that they occasionally revert. It happens about 6-12 mos after training is complete. It will go on for a few months and they as suddenly as it appeared it will disappear. I have one that is having frequent accidents. I can't put her in a pull up b/c that is a license to pee, and I can't put her in panties b/c she pees them. For some reason going commando under her clothes has gotten my point across. BTW mine is 4 1/2 and has been potty trained for nearly 2 years, but we seem to do this about every 6 mos and it goes on for roughly a month each time.

  • Yes. Sometimes there isn't pain, but the frequent, immediate need to go.

  • But could that be an ongoing thing for over a month? I'd feel terrible if that were the case and she's been dealing with it all this time. She doesn't complain of pain or anything.

  • Has she had any changes in her routine or is she stressed about anything? That can sometimes trigger it. I would try to rule out any potential medical issues (as mentioned) before, though.

  • I would also suspect an infection, especially if she's going so often.
