shes doing alot better telling me all the time she needs to go
her big sister has been helping her out and reminding her as well to go so hopefully were on the right track but fingers cross thanks everyone for your help

I have a 3 yearoldson who has started the same thing he has been trained for almost a year and out of the blue started wetting again! I started the hourly trips to the bathroom again & loadsa praise when he told me he had to go & then he kinda jus stopped!! Just let her know your so proud when she goes and shel eventually stop as she will try to impress you! I olso used a sticker chart wich my son loved,maybe giv that a try!! Gud luck! :-)

you could do several things - it could be a UTI or some other type of infection or it could be trying to get attention. Have the doctor check her out and if she's ok then ignore it and change her pants without saying anything about it. Pretty soon she'll stop.

Does she tell you when she has to go? Or are her potty trips still scheduled? If they are still scheduled trips, start teaching her that she has to go potty when she has the urge topee or poop. If she hasn't started telling you when she has to go, she may just be the 7 of 10 children who have continence issues. This is perfectly normal and with the help of modern pull-ups and your pediatrician, you can live an almost clothes wetting free life again, it just may take a while for her to get completely adjusted to the potty thing.
