I remember someone posting a while back about their daughter that had accidents frequently (after potty training was well over) and there were several responses from others who experienced several things.
My dd is 4 1/2 and has been day time potty trained since age 2 1/2. She does really well and rarely has an accident. In fact, when out and about we used to have the problem with her having such good bladder control, she would hold her pee several hours because she only wanted to pee at home. 2 months ago, she gained bladder control at night and no longer needs pull ups.
One year ago she had a UTI, at which time she went to pee frequently and a large amount, she had an odor to her urine, and she would have an accident in the bathroom right before she made it to the toilet to pee. After that was cleared, she did fine and hasn't had a day time accident since. The past 2 1/2 weeks she started having day time accidents again right before she gets on the toilet, sometimes soiling her clothes, and sometimes just peeing on the floor while trying to make it in time. We had her urine checked at the MD office a few days ago and she didn't have a UTI. The MD said it may because children her age get caught up playing and forget to go in time. But, every accident my dd has she is right at the toilet and she says she tries to wait to get on the toilet. This had been happening just once or twice a day, and when it happened today I deliberately made her try to go pee more frequently. But she had accidents 3 times today, even going at more frequent intervals!
Is there anything I can do, or anything that might be wrong? I think if it was due to laziness on her part she would have accidents at night (she does always make it in time in the morning after waking), and she would have accidents while playing, instead of leaving play to go to the bathroom. If the issue isn't better by the end of the week with me reminding her to go more frequently, I am wanting to call the MD office, but the MD wouldn't be able to do anything but prescribe a bladder control med I think....and I would only want that as a last resort if it was absolutely necessary.
Just being anxious, and hoping some of you have a success story to encourage me that this too shall pass.......
