My middle child of 2 years (older sibling 6, younger sibling 8 months) is in a constant cycle of regression every since the birth of her baby brother. She has been fully potty trained for 5 months. We can take her on 3 hour car rides with no accidents. She an be with grandparents all weekend with no accidents. When she is at home with me she has accidents, not even accidents, more like deliberate intentions. . Typically this happens when I am in the middle of nursing her brother or doing something for him. We recently moved and already the house stinks of urine. Do I put her back in a diaper or go back to the basics and give her potty rewards? We went through this cycle before and i went back to the basics, gave her lots of attention and she was magically cured. I believe this is a cry for more attention. I understand two year old's only have control over the potty and eating. Has anyone gone through this? How did you get through it? Before I gave birth to my son 8 months ago my doctor said this would happen to leave her in diapers for as long as possible. Sorry for the long post. Help please.
