Is there anything I can do for her? PIOG

My daughter is 3 and has been potty trained for over a year.  Yesterday and today however she has wet herself several times without even seeming to notice.  So, I am assuming she has a UTI.  So my questions are what can I do until we can get her to the doctor?  Is there any point where we should take her to the ER instead (we will obviously avoid that unless completely necessary)?  She doesn't seem to be in any pain or anything.  Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated!!

I think the cranberry juice works to help a UTI from setting in, I don't think it does much once its already there but I could be wrong of course! 

I'd get her to a dr asap... the last one I had spread to my kidneys within hours of me starting to not feel good.  It hurt like hell and took a couple weeks of antibiotics to kill.  I've only had 2 ever (knock on wood!)

 Definitely cranberry juice, or at least lots of water.  If she's not in any pain and not running a fever, she should be ok to wait until Monday, but if you're unsure, you can always call the on-call dr.  Hope she gets better soon!

 I wouldn't worry about an ER trip unless the urine is blood tinged. But for now cranberry juice and LOTS of water to drink. I would call the docs after hours number to see if she could maybe call in something so you could start her on meds asap.

And you can try AZO. I am not sure the dose for a child though, so ask the pharmacist. But it will help a lot. Is her urine cloudy or foul smelling? If not, than maybe its not a UTI. Def make dr. apt on monday.

I am not sure, I will remember to check that the next time she goes.  Thanks!
