View Full Version : Constantly wetting
My sister is having problems with her almost 3 year old daughter. She has been toilet trained for awhile now but lately is constantly wetting her pants. She is praised every time she goes and they have tried taking things she loves as punishment but that does not work. This morning my sister put her clothes on and before she even had her long pants on she had wet her undies. They just went to the park and she went to the toilet before they left and by the time they got there she had wet her pants. She is driving my sister crazy!! Any suggestions??
hello, yes i am having the exact same problem with my girl. she was trained and now just wee's everywhere, very frustrating. will someone please help us!!!!!!!!!
Does she bed wet at all? Just as a side issue, have her blood sugar levels checked - if she has constant thirst as well.
Punishment of any sort during toilet training years will only add to the problem, it's best to just be firm about trying to make it too the toilet next time. It's not uncommon for children to have minor setbacks :yes: Best of luck to your sister :)
Urinary tract infections are unbelievably comon in young children and this can lead to bladder problems (constant small wees). I would take her to the dr just to rule out any possible infection and then if all is ok then be patient, keep rewarding her but don;t punish her if she makes a mistake, clean it up without any fuss (as minimal reaction as possible) and :fingerscrossed: she will get back up to speed in no time at all.
I can fully relate with my 3yr old, we had her checked for UTI which came through clear. Dr said it was not uncommon for children to have accidents up to 6yrs!! She also printed off a fact sheet from the Sydney Children's Hospital site - www.sch.edu.au (http://www.sch.edu.au) which provided some information on day wetting and bed wetting.
Our problems at the moment are that we prompt little miss to go to the loo if it has been a while and she mostly refuses which sometimes leads her to have an accidents later. She's started wetting her bed at daycare (something she's never done before - I think there might be a hang on too long issue there??) and she gets so distracted with what she's doing she waits to the last minute again resulting in an accident. But what really drives me crazy is when she's doing the 'toilet dance' and we ask her to go and again she refuses say she dosen't need to then two minutes later she's standing in a giant puddle in the loo!!
I'm still providing lots of praise and hi fives when she has her good days.
Hmmm.....was just about to post about my 4yo old son doing constant small wees (not full bladders) in his undies during the day! He is perfectly trained at night...only ever a couple of wet beds...He has been wetting his pants for ages...he still does wees in the toilet but always has wet undies.....am seriously thinking about getting the dr to check it all out..
my dd did this to cant really tell u anything but maybe leave it till later when they reconise that they need to go i know nappies are a pain but sometimes its better to wait till there telling you they need use the toilet
Girls this must be very common as my son who will be 3 in November is the same.
He has been toilet trained since 18months and just of the past couple of months has began wetting his pants which is very annoying.
However he does drink a lot which is also a worry as he seems to be constantly thirsty.
I have to practically drag him to the toilet when he does need to go.
A nurse told me that it wasnt unusual for little ones to drink a lot but I am beginning to worry could there be a problem??? :confused:
