We have a new baby girl 7 weeks old so Im sure its natural for my toddler to regress, but I dont know what to do! She goes to school and shee pees in her pants all day long. Im beyond frustrated at this point. Any suggestions?

This happened to me too, my daughter had lots of regressions up till the age of 3. It's really frustrating and I have to admit a lot of times I didn't handle it in the best way, but the only thing that works is love and patience and not making a big deal out of it - and remember that she will sort herself out again, all children do. Is she jealous of the new baby? Make sure you have time for her without the little one and include her as much as possible so she feels she is your "helper" and will feel more protective than jealous. My daughter has just turned 4 and over the last 4 months has regressed at night after being dry by night for months. That was frustrating also because it was difficult to believe that she would sort herself out as some children wet the bed for years. Needless to say she is ok now but she's very sensitive to emotional upheaval and I think that's why she's had so many regressions. Good luck it will be ok.
