My daughters daycare wants her back in pull-ups: Thoughts?

My daughter will be 3 in 3 months, has been in underwear since last August. Recently at daycare, she has been having frequent accidents, mainly pooping ones, so they want her back in pull-ups. At home she is 100% potty trained, I don’t even tell her to go she sends herself for pee and poop. Even if we go out in public, she tells me I have to go potty, and we go. Daddy is deployed, and we are expecting number 2 in 2 months, so I feel like it’s her wanting to be a baby again, and I feel like a pull-up is not going to help but makes things worst. Any suggestions? Did your children go through this? Did pull-ups help?

I would find another daycare. If you’re not consistent with underwear, she is going to be extremely confused.

Find a better day care as they should be helping toilet training not going back wards

I would find a different day care… how dare they degrade your daughters develipment and want to put her back out of pure laziness… thats all it is… instead of asking her every 10-15 mins woukd she like to try they would tather her take a step back n be back in nappies… i dont think so that is not acceptable… i worked in a nursery for 10 years and would never even suggest that especially after it being nearly a year she is trained for.

Due in two months, my daughter started regressing too. She’s stopped and we’re moved onto night time training. I would get a new daycare, they should know you have to be consistent, or they do and don’t give a fuck cause they don’t want the clean up.

change your daycare! kids express themselves is very different ways something is not right if she is having accidents at daycare but not anywhere else!

No to pull ups the daycare needs to step up. Have the talk every day and make sure THEY take her to potty. Im sure she’s playing and doesnt want to stop having fun. But no way I’d put pull ups back on a 3 yr old who is doing fine at home because the daycare doesnt remind her to go potty and stay and sit to poo

Tell daycare to deal with it and take her to bathroom often! Don’t go back to pull ups or she will just regress and you will have 2 in diapers! Daycare is your problem!

No you should find another daycare, they should be assisting in potty training !

Day care sounds awful!! Switch, they should support you with whatever you’re doing at home.

I work at a daycare and this is very common for kids this age. They get busy playing and don’t really want the hassle of stopping to go potty. We would never suggest to put a baby back in pull-ups if they’ve been trained for so long. I would say it’s probably difficult to keep up with her changing with a classroom full of other children, but with Covid they have way less children than normal! Don’t go backwards or lower your expectations for your daughter to go potty. Switch daycares if you’d like or see if they will set a schedule to send her potty more frequently instead of waiting for her to ask. If they aren’t willing to work with you they are probably just being lazy and you should find a new daycare which will be difficult during this time because we all have limited openings. Good luck :heart:

My daughter with pull ups didnt work because it just felt like a diaper. Either a new daycare or they need to take her potty more often. Something doesnt make sense if she has no accidents when shes home with you

Id tell them no and to send her for more frequent potty breaks because shes fine at home so maybe shes just distracted

Seems to me that putting her back in the pull-ups will just set her back and confuse her. Daycare needs to be persistent in getting her to the bathroom every couple of hours to avoid an accident.

I would maybe try to figure out why she’s only doing it at daycare, like is something going on at the daycare, not so much a new baby, that’s bothering her. I wouldn’t have her back track :disappointed:

No I feel like she may be too shy to ask to be taken to the potty or maybe doesn’t want to ask them.
First, I’d try to ask her why she had poop accidents. See what she says. Also, totally could be that she doesn’t want to break away from any fun to go potty when she feels it. Are you able to explain to her that she will wear pull-ups at school but that’s just in case and she still needs to get to the potty on time and not ignore her body when it’s telling her she has to go. Honestly I find explaining things out even with a child at that age really helps the most.

Can you send yer in underwear and when she does have an accident they can put her in a pull up if they feel the need? Its not like they are the ones doing the laundry
