What do you do about wee regressions?

So DD is 3.2. For the last couple of weeks has started having regular accidents. Not every day but some days it can be 2+ times. I've been very "oh well, not to worry" about it and cleaned her up with no fuss. But as its been going on a while now I'm wondering if I ought to be doing more. Reward chart or something?

Dr has ruled out UTI. And no other major changes in her life. She's been dry nearly a year having trained herself so it's a bit frustrating. She's also developed an annoying habit of getting wee on the floor when she is on the potty - deliberately leaning far back/legs open.

Don't have any direct experience (I have three boys!) but there's some great info on all things toilet related on the website, perhaps there's something on there that may help?

Thanks, I'll look.

It's actually worse on nursery days which might be ok, just that she's busy, but it lasts for a day or two afterwards. She's in 2, sometimes 3 days per week. And on days when it happens she reverts to being wet overnight. (She wears a pull-up at night but had until this started been dry maybe 5 or 6 nights out of 7.)

Sorry, didn't mean to drip feed that bit.

Shameless bump. Really interested to hear how others have handled this. (And thoughts about the conversation with nursery about what may or may not be promoting it.)

*prompting it.

Is it maybe an attention thing/because she's worried or anxious about something completely unrelated?
Have you asked her if anything is bothering her?

Is she maybe getting a bit big for the potty and that's why the wee is going everywhere. Could she go on the toilet with a little step.

When does it happen, is it when she is distracted playing for example?

Can you get her into the bathroom after she has done it and clean her up without making a big fuss of it but so it takes a long time and make it as boring as possible. So she realises that it's easier/better to go to the toilet rather than having to miss playing to get cleaned up.
