My 5 yr old DS has wet himself a couple of times this week .. what could be wrong?

DS, who is fully toilet trained etc, has wet himself a couple of times in the last 2 days, once at home and once at school. Also, despite this, he will go to the toilet for a wee say 3 -4 times within 10 minutes.

Part of me thinks he might have an infection, but also he's been a bit funny about going to the toilet on his own the last couple of weeks. I think this may be down to a Scooby Doo episode in which there was a scary face in the mirror, but he also said that at school, naughty boys turn the light off when he's in the bathroom - although he did say that I shouldn't worry about this as he still goes to the toilet.

I'm not sure if the two things are linked or if they are separate.

It's worth getting him to the GP on case it's a UTI - frequent weeing like that isn't normal.

Could be both. Perhaps he's not going properly thanks to the bigger boys sad and it's lead to an infection. Can u go with him
To the loo and talk to him and distract him so he has time to go properly?

Thanks - I'll take him to the GP on Monday morning so he can be checked out. Fortunately he isn't experiencing any pain - not yet anyway
