Night time accidents

My DD has wet her bed twice in the last two weeks. She's been in underwear for about 4 months, and she turned 3 a month ago. I am not super concerned, but thought I would see if anyone has dealt with this or had advice.

Both times were after having juice with dinner, so I think that is the culprit.

She was really scared both times it happened, but we told her it was no big deal, and that if she ever needs to go pee, to call us and we'll come. She's still in a crib with a crib tent.

I really don't want to put her back in pullups since she has woken up dry for over 6 months.

My plan is to cut out any juice in the evening, make sure she pees after her bath, and keep using a waterproof pad under her bedding.

Any other ideas?

Hello Claire.


You are probably right on the juice,but if it gets worse,Take her to her doctor and have him/her test for diabetes and infections,but if it stops with stopping the juice,I would just forget it for now.


Her bladder may still be a bit small and can only handle the normal amount for night time and the juice overflows it.


Please let us know how it goes,she sounds like she is basically finished training,don't forget,even adults can have the odd accident.


Many Blessings.

Some other causes of temporary regression can be things like growth spurts, constipation, stress (even something as simple as a new daycare worker, even if your child loves that new worker), etc.

When you can see a strong probable cause/effect between the juice and the bed wetting, I'd follow up on that idea first, but like Mac said, if the problem persists, you might want to follow up with the doc to rule out a medical problem.

Claire, Hi and welcome to the Toilet Teaching board.

I agree with the previous posters. If it continues you may want to talk with the pediatrician as there are many reasons that can cause that to happen. Please keep us updated on your DD progress.
