My stepdaughter is 9 years old. She pees her pants daily. And she wets the bed as well. She is constantly giving herself a UTI because she pees her pants and then lies about it and sits in it until it dries. She pees at home, school, babysitters, grandparents houses, parks, church, slumber parties, etc. She is at the Dr.s at least 10 times a year for a UTI. She has been tested by specialists, seen at the ER, all of it. They claim she is a completely healthy child. She has even gone as far as pooping her pants at her own birthday party in her bedroom in front of her guests at 10 in the morning. I am growing deeply frustrated here because she always shruggs her shoulders when you ask her why she peed!! I am not really concerned with the night time accidents, but I don't understand why it doesn't bother her that she is sitting in cold wet urine?!?! She gets picked on at school for being the smelly kid and she doens't care!!Answer Question

I totally agree with momthruivf. Put her in big kid diapers. I would be very concerned about this if I were you. No normal child is like this. A normal child would be devastated if they peed their pants at school. Something is going on with her. What does her dad say about this? Good luck, I hope everything turns out OK.
