Maybe the change in place affected him without him realising it. I wouldnt of thought it would be something he can control when sleeping so probably best just to clean it up and not be cross. I expect it will pass.
personally I'd make him take his own clothes off, put them in the washing basket, wash himself, get himself new clothes, get dressed and clean up any mess on the floor (baby wipes good for this if you have) .. and do it all calmly and matter-of-factly in an 'oh dear, well now you need to....' way , and do not allow any games / tv / distraction until its all been done
Hi Hausfrau, concerned to hear about this, sorry no advice but big hugs and love. Weird with the timing - I might have thought it was the change of environment, missing daddy etc, but since it happened before, during and after I'm not sure what to think
Hausfrau .. me too .. when DS regressed at 3 I did every wrong thing in the book .. shouting, wheedling, getting annoyed .. it is so very frustrating isn't it? like they're doing it on purpose to wind you up
Just waved bye bye to dd's little friend who's 5.5 yo and has bene here this pm for a playdate. She wet herself here and her mother informed me she has been wetting herself at home this past week. She's stumped aswell.
My ds (very nearly 6) has done this a couple of times at the childminders recently, both times when he's been playing outside with the other kids, and just can't be bothered to go in to the loo.
I made it quite clear, when it happened last time that I do not consider it acceptable. I took money from his jar, and once casually mentioned the possibility of putting him back in nappies, so everyone knows he is a baby. So we haven't had another occurrence in the last 3 weeks.
Oh, and I have taken to reminding him to go to the loo a couple of times a day. He does have a bladder like a camel, and I wondered if he just allowed himself to get to bursting point.
My dd potty trained like a dream at 2.5, really no effort on my part and has been fine ever since. But the last few months - she's just over 4 now, she has started being 'late' for the toilet and so wetting her pants. It's very frustrating and never happened when she was at nursery. I put it down to her being more absorbed in activities now and forgetting to go and the reason she didn't do it at nursery is because she probably went to the toilet more often just to copy her friends.
I agree it is very frustrating, especially as she is starting school in September. I've got three pre-schoolers so I'm not very good at reminding her (can only just about remember to go myself ).
