How can I encourage my 3 1/2 year old to stop have #2 accidents in her panties?!

My daughter was potty trained (completely, even at night) at the age of 3. Within the past couple weeks, she has started going #2 in her panties. She is not even telling me before she has to go, or after she has gone. We talk about it not feeling good on her bottom and the "rewards" for her going on the potty. It is not getting any better, maybe even worse.

  • What time does this happen? Try to take her to the bathroom 1/2 hour before that time. Then 15 minutes before that time. Talk to her about ways to make it happen. Grunt! Push!! Success deserves a cheer!!!
    Good luck.
