Post subject: accidents
sam has been potty trained for 9 months now, and is really quite reliable, and can hold it.
but the last 2 days she has wet herself, and both times she has been next to the toilet. the first time yesterday she was in her bedroom and said she needed a wee, then she wet herself in the bathroom. (which is next door to her bedroom) quite often we will be out and she will say she needs a wee, and by the time we get to a toilet she has forgotten about it, so i dont think she is leaving it til the last minute.
tonight she has done it and had been to the toilet less then an hour before, and it was still a lot of wee.

Hi, it could just be a phase, but if it carries on for another day or 2 it might be worth a check at the doctors as it can be a sign of urine infection when they suddenly start having accidents after being good for a while. Could it just be that she is distracted doing other things and cant be bothered to go in time?

it could be that she is just pushing how far she can hold it. i did wonder about an infection but would have thought she would be having more accidents? she seems really upset about it when it happens so i know its not attention seeking.
i will keep an eye on her for signs of being unwell, but at the moment im just making a big fuss of her when she does get to the toilet
