my dd is an active, healthy 4 yr old. a bit on the tall side, average weight. no medical issues. but she only uses the bathroom once a day--and can be in there for 30 minutes.
I've tried to get her to sit on the john in the morning when she awakens, bury short of trying her down nothing.
today is a typical day. she was on the commode @ 8:20 to 8:45 last night and here it is 11am and she has yet to use it again. she has swimming so i know that the 1/2 mile walk to the school plus the 45 minute session will have her ready to use it afterwards and she might use it again before bed. but swimming is once a week.
she drinks 16oz of water during the day, does nite eat proceased foods, does not complain of anything but "being itchy" in her groin area. The doctor has found no infections or rashes. nor are her pants too tight.
she does not wet herself or have accidents.
is this normal?
i grew up with a bathroom schedule, so im not sure what is normal anymore.
