4yr old daughter started peeing in her pants

Recently my 4yr old daughter has started peeing in her pants 4 or 5 times a day.  It's not a lot, just enough to get her pants a little bit wet. She only does it when she's at home or at my mother's house, never when we are out.  She's an only child, we haven't moved into a new home or made any other changes that might have triggered her to start this behavior.  When I ask her why she wet her pants she says she doesn't know, she guesses she just waited too long.  And then last night she went to the potty to poop and about 1/2 an hour later she pooped a little in her pull up.  I was upset to say the least because she hasn't had a poopy accident in years.  She doesn't like being treated like a baby and it kills her to have to wear a pull up, but I'm at my wit's end.  We have tried taking things away when she wets her pants because she knows when she has to go but just chooses not to, but it just seems to keep getting worse.  Why has she regressed?  Please help, anyone who has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it.

my daughter is 4 in a month and she just recently started peeing in her pantys to. Potty training her was pretty easy and she never had accidents ..i have heard that it can be a sign of a uti...urinary track infection..so you may want to get her checked ..alot of girls get them around 4 because they hold there pee for sooo long, take themselves to the bathroom, ect...i have heard its very common in young girls..my daughter doesnt say it hurts or doesnt appear red however it can be inside and not noticable by just looking..so its worth a try..!!
