How do I know if this is a UTI or a accident phase ?

I think my daughter may have a UTI. She is potty trained but lately she has had frequent accidents and sometimes I catch her 'holding herself'. She had an overnight accident so I put her pull-ups and every morning since, those have been wet, which NEVER happens because she was wearing panties to bed. So, how do I know that she has a UTI , or if she is going through a phase where she is having accidents ?

  • Ask her if it is hurting when she pees. Her urine might also smell kind of strong and sweet if it is infected.

    It is an easy pee-in-a-cup thing at the ped to find out for sure, though, so there is no harm in taking her in if you are concerned.
