potty trained 27 month old girl who....

is very good about using the potty she has been trained maybe 3 weeks problem is the last few days she has been telling us she needs to pee about every 5 to 10 minutes...we are not sure if she is doing this just because she can(and we have noticed she does it when she has to do or eat something she doesn't want to) or if she actually has a problem....she does not seem to have any pain when going nor does it seem cloudy and she hasn't had any accidents which they also say is common in trained kids so i do not suspect a uti...yesterday she started a runny nose and a pretty nasty cough and i have not taken her temp yet(and I will in a few minutes) but she seems to have a slight fever...could her doing this be the result of an oncoming cold or something else?? I am trying to not take her to the doctor since she is currently not insured although I would take her if she HAD to go..just curious on some opinions...thank you

    It is a way to get out of this. She knows that you won't tell her she can't go since you have been encouraging her to go often. Tell her that you will take her potty but then she must come back and finish doing or eating the thing she doesn't want to. She will soon learn that pottying will not get her out of this.

  • She may have an intestional bug and her tummy hurts so she explains it by saying she has to go potty but she may feel like she has to poop. if she is running a fever you may want to take her to the Doctor especially if she gets diarreah and keep her hydrated.

  • Is she actually going when she says she has to go?
