My potty trained child is having accidents



From: Nicole

Subject: frequent urination

Question: Hi, i wanted to know why my child who is successfully pottie trained is now urinating so frequently. She also used to stay dry through the night. Now, for the past week and a half every night there has been an accident. At school her teachers have noticed her frequency as well. What is going on?

Answer: Dear Nicole,

There isn't much information here. She maybe regressing as something in her daily routine has changed. First I encourage parents to check with their pediatrician to rule out any physical problems. Then I encourage parents to look at the child's daily routine has something in her day changed? Has something in the family changed? Start observing and asking yourself the same questions.

Best Wishes!
