Help! 3.6yo has gone back to having accidents and wetting the bed

(2 Posts)

Reposting this from Behaviour/Development as nobody replied:

DD1 has been potty trained for over a year now, and dry at night for months. But in the last week or so she's had wet clothes a few times, and the past 3 nights she's wet the bed. She also sometimes ends up peeing on the potty and floor as she leaves it till the last minute and then starts peeing before she's fully sat down. I think the problem during the day is just that she leaves it until the last minute; she'll be squirming and dancing around but will be adamant, when asked, that she doesn't need to go. There's no convincing her to try, she'll only go whe she wants to.

There are a few factors which might be at play. She started nursery 2 weeks ago, but she seems to have settled well. She had an accident on her 2nd day there (needed a change of clothes), in fact that was the first accident she had in a long time. She's also dropped her afternoon naps (because of nursery). And her baby sister has recently started walking and is obviously getting a bit of fuss made of her over that.

So I don't know what to do. I can't help being disappointed and angry when she wets the bed especially, but if it's attention thing I obviously don't want to make a big deal of it. I've been trying to really praise her when she uses the potty.

Has anyone else had similar problems? What should I do?

Hi, no advice I'm afraid but our DS who is 3.2yo is going through a similar stage, he's been potty trained for about 6 months now in the day, still wears nappy in the night tho and since starting nursery 3 weeks ago has had "accidents" almost every day both in nursery and at home.

It is so frustrating because even if we keep asking him if he wants to go, he will say no and then when we check, his pants are damp!

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated :-S
