Why has she regressed?

My 3 year old daughter has been fully potty trained for a while but has recently started pooing her pants again. I'd really like to know why she is doing this and more importantly, what do I do about it?
Her baby brother was born 5 months ago but so far she has not displayed any obvious signs of jealousy and seems to really like him. Could this be the reason for her regression?
Can anyone help?

It is very possible without outward emotion to be jelouse of a younger sibling. She 'might' feel that the attention the baby gets is greater than her own. Plus sometimes playing over takes other things such as potty, and eating. She should stop on her own, but if she doesn't you can try things like potty timers. My oldest had potty issues too, but mostly because she was 'busy playing' and didn't react fast enough when her body had enough.
