Sudden Daytime/Nighttime Wetting?

My youngest Eva (she's 4) was completely potty trained (both day/night) 19 months ago. It only took a couple of days to train her and she did great.


Suddenly, out of the blue, she started having wetting accidents (day and night) about 2 weeks ago. We took her to the doctor, thinking it might have been a UTI. They went ahead and put her on antibiotics when her urine test

What beautiful girls you have!


How often does she go to the bathroom?

Thanks for the compliment.


She goes to the bathroom every couple of hours like normal, but usually she is playing when she has the accident and it's not very much. Like it will just wet her panties and a little on her pants. No running down her legs or getting on the floor. Most of the time she tries to hide it, and will go and change herself, but sometimes she will tell me.


Yesterday I talked to the doctor again and we think there is a very good possibility that she has a vaginal yeast infection because of external redness/irritation (the doctor has already looked at her twice in the last two weeks), so we put her on Diflucan because the external cream just isn't cutting it. She's feeling much better now. She didn't have any accidents yesterday and hasn't wet the bed at night for a week now. So I think we're on our way out (hopefully!)!

It is always best to rule out a medical issue first as you hate to punish if it isn't their fault.


It also isn't uncommon for them to test their bladder control and pull the lazy card out, LOL!

I'm so glad things are looking better! I'm glad you didn't want to do the diaper or pull-up thing because that would be humiliating for her, I think.
