Toilet trained child wetting again :(

Candice - posted on 10/30/2011 ( 2 moms have responded )





I have a almost 3 yr old lil girl who has been toilet trained for months now. SHe has been going really well up until this week.
All of a sudden she is weeing and pooing in her pants again! I try not to get frustrated at her and say its ok its just an accident but it gets very frustrating when their wetting their pants all day all of a sudden.

Does anyone have any tips or reasons why she would be doing this?? Do I have to just start all over again with the toilet training???
Please help!!!

This is quite normal I am afraid my daughter is the same age as yours and she has been toilet trained since February but the whole of August she reverted back to wetting again. It was so frustrating knowing she could use the toilet if she wanted to. Your daughter is doing the same as mine just rebelling against growing up. She will snap out of it and do it again but it has to be her choice. Make a big thing of being a big girl and doing things together like big girls do, and when she wets do not be to hasty to change her let her feel uncomfortable first. Fingers crossed we have been ok since August with no accidents. This seems very common in little girls.

I agree with Louise, but I will say it is common in boys and girls. My son was fully trained for 6 months, and then reverted back for about 3 months. They just go through this. I know, not really helpful, but at least you know you are not alone.
