Take her to the doctor and make sure she does not have a urinary tract infection.

If it is for attention---give her the attentioin she needs. With the new baby she may feel liek pushed to the side, eveyone wants to see the new baby,.the new baby got lots of new toys and clothes, at school she is one of many he may need some one of one time.

i would ignore it and act as if what she is doing doesnt bother you. try to get on a good routine with her and spend more time with her :)

this sounds like a cry for attention to me. i would check with your pediatrcian just to be sure. if its attention that she needs try (if you havent already) spending special one on one time with her with out the baby around. take her somewhere special just the two of you, pick her up after school by yourself, let her help as much as is age appropiate with the baby. let her know you love and value her just as much as the baby. i know its not always easy i went thru something simial when my youngest child was born and these tips helped tp get us thru. good luck

Get her out of the pull ups completly!!!! That is back traking. It is probably just the change. But I had bladder control problems when I was in school too. It was so horable. I was so devistated!!!! just weak bladder! I grew out of it buy grade 4. took forever!!! my mom just made my take a change of pants to school and wet wipes. I left it in the office with the nurse so noone knew at school. But I realy just think it is a change thing with the new baby!!!

It may be , i would try talking to a child psychologist for some advice or things you can do at home . If that doesn't work maybe take her in to talk with one . Cold also be a medical problem have you talked to your child's pediatrician about this ?
