Accidents - Anoka,MN
I am having issues with my daughter having accidents, see I have identical twins. Abbey was the easy one to train I had her trained in one day simple and easy. Now she has been having more accidents during the day with me. I don't know if its because daddy is out of town for work or what. I'm kinda tired of the mountains of laundry to do during the day, and I really don't want to go and buy her pullups again. Just need some words of wisdom or encouragement. I just don't want her twin to start getting the same idea that she can have accidents too!!

Any type of change in your daughters routine may cause her to have more accidents than normal. Other than your husband being out of town has there been more anxiety in your household? I would first try going back to the training w/o the training pants and she should get back to the routine. You may also remind her to go because at this age she is getting busier than ever and she may not even realise she has to go til it happens. Also if these don't help she may have an urinary infection of some sort.

Kids have set backs, its ok! Mountains of laundry is irritating but it will be ok. Her daddy out of town might have alittle to do about it, lack of attention, soo she is seeking it in one way or another! Try to be possitive towards her this too shall pass!
Hang in there!

Bring her to the chiropractor. If she's out of adjustment she may not be feeling the urge as much as she should be. It helped one of my daycare kids.

I have a daughter with Down Syndrome and she is 3 yrs old and has had similar issues. She did very well for a very long time and she has now started pre-school and the after school Adventure Club and has regressed. I agree with the mom that posted about the potty watch. This has helped me, the teachers and some other students get in the routine. I found another thing that helped was getting her some cute undies that she picked out. We talk about it in the morning about how we don't want to pee on elmo or tinker bell. She seems to be improving. I hope this helps!
