Potty trained and having accident's

My DD is 3 and she's potty trained but at night she wears a pull ups still. Lately she has been having a lot of accident's at home and at preschool. I'm a little concerned. Seems like when she is doing something and doesn't want to leave the activity she will have an accident. Any tips would be great.. Thanks Ladies!

  • sometimes kids revert back when changes happen in their lives (moving, a new baby, etc...) and they grow out of it once they get re-adjusted. In some extreme cases I have seen kids use the bathroom as a power-play (to get attention, to get something they want, to make you late on purpose- i'm not making this up)... in those cases I'd say some negative reinforcement is warranted (if you potty in your pants today you don't get to go to the park tomorrow).

  • My pediatrician told me that after about 6 mos they kind of revert back because the novelty has worn off. You will have to revert back to what you did to get her trained in the first place. I wish you luck because I know that I will have to go through this in a few months.

  • You may want to get a culture done for a UTI.
