My daughter has been having accidents: Advice?

My three-year-old wee’s herself! She gets lazy or sometimes waits till the last minute then it’s too late? She knows how to go the toliet. Any suggestions? As I’m at my wit ends…

Keep reminding her to go to the bathroom

I would imagine, like any 3 year old, they get busy with what they are doing or don’t want to miss out and just wait too long. She will get it, just keep reminding her.

Possible she might have a bladder infection or a uti. Maybe bring her in to get checked out?

Every hour ask her to go toilet

Set a timer every hour and she has to go no matter what. If that doesn’t work then take her in to get checked out.

She’s still learning. She’s only three. She’s not being lazy…

Remind her every 30 mon to an hour to go potty. If she fight you use if…then statements. Ex if you go potty then you can watch TV. Or if you gotta then you can play

You could always try a kid friendly watch with a timer on it.

Set a timer. Say “I bet you are so proud of yourself” when she goes potty. Use a visual chart. We do stickers

Most likely a bladder infection or prolapse. I had it a lot as a kid.

Set a timer for her to remind her to go or get her a potty watch that will remind her. And if she makes a mess, make her clean it up herself (with your supervision of course and you helping if she really needs it.) This is what I had to do with my daughter at that age. She got over cleaning up her own mess pretty quickly and we didn’t have anymore accidents.

Get a potty watch or a timer and set it every so often to keep her in the habit.

Try having her wear long dresses/nightgowns but no underwear. That feeling of having underwear there makes it feel like she has something to go in.

Put her back in pull-ups, maybe she won’t want nothing to do with pull-ups after that.

She is 3, and that is normal. She needs to be reminded after a certain amount of time that she needs to go.

She’s three, she’s not lazy. Have patience, remind her frequently. They’re extremely distractable at that age. There are plenty of 3 year olds who are not trained at all. You don’t need to be at your wits end with a 3 year old.

Get her checked for a water infection x

She’s 3…she hasn’t been potty trained that long to not have accidents. Remind her if she goes when she feels the need to go. She’ll get there earlier. I’m going through the same thing.
