Started wetting knickers again

Please help, I feel at my wits end with this. My daughter was potty trained when she was 2.5 years. She has started wetting herself again every now and then, but its getting more often. I feel she is doing it on purpose. We have a sticker system and if she knows she is going to get somethings good when she gets ten stickers - like a magazine, she is generally good and goes normally to the toilet by herself.

However, if there is a reason why she can't get a sticker - they have run out, or the reward isn't percieved as good enough this time, or we are away from home and she knows the sticker system isn't in force then, or recently, because it's just not as effective, she is weeing in her knickers and not telling me.

She must know she has done one. She sits there with wet knickers but says nothing. Sometimes I can see she needs the toilet and I keep saying 'You need the toilet, please go upstairs (or come with me)'. She keeps saying 'no I don't', then just wets herself. On occasion when this happens I have taken something away from her or sent her to her room, but she does not seem to care. She just looks at me blankly and says 'OK, I didn't want it anyway'.

She is quite capable of going for long periods with no accidents and for managing the toilet herself.

Any ideas?!

Have you had a new baby or anything like that which might cause her to regress to try to get your attention?

When DD started doing this it turned out she had a minor uti - might be worth checking out?

Hi, We had a new baby who is now 9 months old. There was a re-lapse a bit when he was born, but was fine for a long period before this started happening again.

I will get her checked at the doctors in case it's a uti. Thank you x
