Urination?

Hi,

My 2 1/2 year old daughter is potty trained and uses the bathroom before bed (8 pm) but does not pee or anything until as late as 11 am the next morning. Is this too long?

Thanks
Ed

Dear Ed:

Well if she is not having accidents and doesn't complain about having to go then I say she is doing great!

QUESTION: Hi Kay,

Well now she has had a few accidents. We attributed the first couple to having a birthday party and a lot going on but they have become a little more frequent the last few days.
Thanks

Dear Ed:

If you think she is holding it too long. Then simply suggest she go sooner. Give her some rewards or incentives to not have an accident. And by the way she will be completely potty trained by the time she goes to elementary school. These things take time and a few accidents are just part of the process.
