To nag or not to nag - getting my dry DS to the loo in time!

My DS has been potty trained for a while now and is dry at night too. He is a terror though for insisting he doesn't need the loo when he is clearly in a lot of discomfort and dying for a wee! I know this is completely normal but at home I nag and bribe and generally hassle him to go to the loo. He is back at nursery for the first time after a long break over summer and has wet himself 4 times today! He didn't even do that when training. I wonder if I should cut out the nagging at home as maybe he is becoming dependant on the reminders and not listening to his own body? Or perhaps the different environment means he will always have more accidents at nursery? Any advice gratefully received!

Could you try rewarding him for the times when he does make it instead of nagging him to go?

Used to do stickers for when he went. I guess I need to change that to stickers or similar when he goes without nagging. Or marble in jar towards a weekend treat type thing. Think he is bored of stickers. I suppose I could ask the nursery to follow suit. That could work!

If it's his first day back after hols, maybe he was just so excited and distracted and that was what caused his accidents? He might settle down again in a couple of days hopefully.

I hope so, I had to put a wash on when he got home! Poor thing.
