  • It's possible that her adenoids (in your throat, by your tonsils) are too large. Consider seeing an ear, nose and throat doctor if it persists.

  • You might want to talk with her and see if there's anything bothering her. Maybe she doesn't want to get up in the night for some reason.

  • I have heard of several children who are just essentially "having too much fun playing" so they don't want to stop long enough to go to the potty. I had a little bit of a problem with that with my kids on occasion. When I asked them what happened, they usually just said they were having fun and didn't want to stop playing. Good luck!

  • Sometimes going back to the basics will reinforce the importance of potty, i.e. "do you have to potty?" or simply stopping and making her go whether before you go out, and after a couple of hours, and doing a potty stop. They have moments of regression, and need to be reminded again. If she hasn't been exposed to any major life changes, or not distressed about anything, it might be only that. The previous posts were right on with playing-so-much-omg-I gotta-go-and-I did!
