Is this common for a 4 year old


My son has been potty trained for like 2-3 months now during the day-- we are still working on the nighttime - he still has accidents about 1-2 times at night and 2 times a week with day poop or pee - is this common for newly potty trained children?

Its usually when he's left to play by himself - we still have to constantly ask him if he has to go or I think he'd have even more accidents

If it makes any difference he was born with a condition called hypospadia and had to have 3 surgeries before it was completely taken care of so the potty training was put off till we got the OK from the doctor

  • Totally normal- especially for boys! Some boys just take a lot longer than others. Some just don't mind having a mess in their pants or they get so busy playing that they just keep playing even though they know they should get to the toilet.
