My daughter is 4 1/2. She has been "potty trained" for well over a year, however she has started wetting her pants again. She will go through 4-5 pairs of pants and underwear a day. I remind her to go at least once every hour, and she'll go, but then she'll still have her accidents. I have absolutely no idea what to do. She starts at a preschool in 2 weeks that said they won't allow children who have frequent accidents. She does this, then will have a week or two at a time with no accidents, then starts this again. It doesn't matter where we are, she usually always wets her pants. I'm at my wits end.
Hi, my daughter is now 6 and she was exactly the same. She had been dry day and night for a while and then suddenly started having wetting accidents both during the day and at night. Children start school at 4 here and I was having to send her with spare underwear. I don't know why it started and I don't know why it stopped - sorry to be so vague, but I just want you to know that it did stop. I didn't draw any attention to what was happening so whether that was why she stopped I don't know. I think sometimes they just get so carried away with what they are doing that they don't want to stop to go to the toilet.
