My 4 year old has been potty trained since we was about 2 but lately he has been missing the toilet and peeing or pooping in his pants. Most of the time I think he just gets carried away with his toys and doesn't realize he has to go until it's too late. We also have a new baby and I'm wondering if that might have something to do with it. Has anyone else gone through this? And if so how did you fix it?

It does sound like it could be the fact that he is to busy playing instead of going and it does sound like because of the new baby that is causing him to want the attention. When a new baby comes into the picture or something big like that (like devioce) the child acts out in ways like this. I work with children daily so I know how this goes because I have seen children who were potty trained and then something changed and its like they forgot. It is nothing to be too worried about I would advice that you get books or something like that that talk about a new baby brother or sister coming into the family. I hope this helps. If you want anymore help let me know and I will get you some more.

Thanks. :) He's getting better with it. He's going to school this fall and I've been telling him he can't do that at school and I think it's helping a little
