    Default sudden incontinence in 4yr old

    Has anyone experienced sudden incontinence with their child? Dd is 4 and fully toilet trained. The last 3 days she has been wetting her pants multiple times a day, no warning, sometimes up to 2-3 times in one hour. There is no uti as we had her checked by the doc. Any ideas what it could be? She seems well, not stressed that I'm aware of.

    Dd2 (5.5) has suddenly started pooing her undies- first time ever since she was toilet trained. We could not work out why, she didn't seem stressed or unhappy or anything. Took ages to realise that it only started was end of year approached, and there was a lot of talk about her starting prep (something she is super excited about) and the fact she won't be in kindy any more. It peaked when there was talk of her and dd1 going to a different school than originally planned. Now we know they are going/staying at the original school, she is doing it less and less. I think she was overwhelm and a bit anxious about it all. Have you tried talking to her to see if anything is bothering her? If not, it may be worth having another chat with your gp, just to rule out any other issues.

    Is there any chance she is constipated? That can cause urinary incontinence.

    I know a child who did this, & it turned out he had diabetes. I am not wanting to be an alarmist,as it is only one symptom of his illness, but maybe something to look out for.

    No constipation, but occasional tummy ache. Interesting about the possible diabetes link.....will be following up with the doctors if it persists over the weekend
