My 3 year old daughter has been potty trained since August. She is almost 3 1/2 and the past week and 1/2 she has been wetting her pants during the day, every day, some times 2 or 3 times a day. Just about an hour ago I decided to put a pull up on her, she hasn't had to wear a pull up during the day in like 6 months.

A lot of times it's because something stressful is going on for them. Figure out if anything has changed during that time period for her. Anything in regards to her schedule, routine, and relationships with anyone close to her.

I agree! this is so typical! She will get back on the potty. maybe she is just being distracted too, that she just does not make it. But hang in there- Also- even tho she has been potty trained for a while- try still making a "big deal" over her going in the potty. Good luck

It's called an "extinction burst" Meaning she is still trained but for some psychological reason(and it happens with a lot of training) the trained behavior suddenly appears not to work. It will last a few weeks :/ Totally normal.

Since you don't know whats happening at her dad's i would find out. The first girl was exactly right. Something is going in her life. If its not your house, find out from Dad.

I can't think of anything that has changed, unless something has happend at her dads house.
