Any advice on how to deal with regression?

LUCIA22 · 17/12/2011 07:23

Ds is 2 1/2 and was potty trained about a month ago. He took to it amazingly quickly and had it mastered within a week or so. I was so relieved as Dd was relatively easy too but everyone said that boys were slower. After a few weeks of him being dry all the time, always telling us when he wanted to go and even going through the night a couple of times, he is now having constant accIdents all the time. Even if I keep asking him and take him to the toilet regularly he will be resistant and do it in his trousers. It's just wee thankfully. He doesn't seem bothered. Have started rewarding him with sweets each time he does one on the toilet but doesn't stop him wetting hi
self. I am frantically handwashing pants and trousers to keep up. There are no obvious reasons as far as I can see, he isn't I'll and there have been no recent changes in routine. Do we start again and bring the potty back into the living room? It's v frustrating as I know he can do it. Anyone else in the same boat?

I have exactly the same problem but DD (2.8) has been trained (and trained herself) since July. In the last 2 weeks she has wet herself every time she goes either finishing off on the potty or just weeing herself, it's almost like she hasn't got a clue anymore and yet she is more than capable.

Should have added that sorry I don't have any advice but hopefully someone will come along and help us both

Thanks, I am sure it is not a rare thing but I am just at a loss to think why he is doing it. Luckily he tells us if he needs a poo! It's so frustrating. I was wondering if it was anything to do with the excitement of Xmas? Cant think of anything else. Is your Dd bothered? Ds really doesn't care if hexsirs in EEG clothes, sometimes he will say he has done a wee but not always. I think he us quietly amused by all the hassle he is causing, maybe that's the key?!

No DD not bothered at all which is the odd thing as she's the one that wanted to train in the first place as didn't like being wet! Go figure, had thought about Christmas too but no real conclusions

Have had a better day but that's because I have taken him to the toilet regularly. The funny thing us that we gave been at a friends Christmas party today and at one point he actually took himself off to the toilet for a poo without saying a word! He is at nursery tomorrow so probably lots of accidents as they can't be as vigilant. We have basically started from the beginning again rewarding everytime he uses the toilet or potty and lots of praise.

We're going through this too with DS2! He's 2.8 and went into pants (at his own insistence) in October, got the hang of it very quickly but in the past two or three weeks keeps having loads of accidents - he'll tell me he needs a wee but by the time we get to the loo his pants are wet. It's happened twice today and driving me up the wall!

Meg fancy bumping into you here! I haven't mumsnetted in probably 2.5 years, didn't think anyone would remember me. Glad I don't need to use the sleep talk boards any more, thankfully DD2 is (slightly) better at sleeping than her sister!
