EDIT: SINCE THIS IS A KEY THING EVERYONE SEEMS TO BE TRYING TO BRING UP...
Ds DOES NOT normally have 6 accidents a day. Usually he starts to wet himself and catches it and runs to the bathroom. And that may only happen twice a day. Other times he goes to the bathroom without a problem. I limit his drinks and ask him every now and then if he has to go to the bathroom. Sometimes he says no, other times he goes. He hadn't hardly had any accidents in a year then I had DD and he has regressed. He had 6 accidents that day because she let him have unlimited drink and never asked him once about going to the bathroom.
Ds is 4 and went to visit my inlaws for 5 days. They live 300mi away and he loves to go so I let him before school starts up. Like many kids, he's potty trained but he has accidents if he's too busy playing and doesnt want to stop, or if he's really tired at night he sleeps too hard and doesn't wake up to go during the night. Well when I packed him to go I told her I had the pullups so he didn't wet her bed. I also told her to make sure he goes to the bathroom because he gets too busy and won't stop. So this is how it went...
Day1: she calls and says he had 6 accidents. I asked her if she made him go and she said no. Then she said well he drinks a lot of drink all day. I told her no, he doesn't usually drink that much so she needed to limit his intake. I then find out she bought him Kool aid squeeze drinks and Capri suns so he was downing those since all he gets here is water, milk or the roaring water capri suns sparingly. So of course he will drink all day.
Day 2: He had 2 accidents and she said she washed 5 loads of clothes that day so he would have enough clothes since he went through all the clothes I sent. ( I seriously sent like 6 outfits)
After that she didn't say anymore and said he was doing fine.
My mom gets him yesterday bc my husband has a job intervew monday in that town. Instead of driving 6hrs to get him Dh will bring him home Monday. Anyhow, so my mom gets DS to spend some time with him and she calls me because he won't put undies on. HE'S ASKING FOR PULLUPS. She said He was in a pull up when she got him but she assumed it was bc of the 3hr ride from MIL to my moms. Twice yesterday Ds had accidents and he told my mom "oh silly jude... I thought I had a pull up on"
WTF! He's been trained since he was 2yrs old. Roughly a year and a half with little to no accidents during the day and randomly at night. He recently regressed and at his 4yr old check up the Pedi said don't worry about it because many do at this age but come out of it. Apparently MIL didn't like that he had accidents so put him full fledge in pull ups. I DIDN'T EVEN POTTY TRAIN HIM IN PULL UPS! Ugh beyond pissed.
