Please Help

Doc I have a 28 month girl, as from Dec 2007 she was ok wearing panties during the day and only wear a nappy at night. She used to tell me when she wants to go the loo but suddenly she is wetting herself telling me late when she wants to go the loo. Is there something wrong with her please help.

Thank you

Your daughter is still very young, so don't rush things. Let her wear trainer pants during the day for a while and then re-start her toilet training. Don't scold her and have lots of patience with her. If she continues to wet herself during the day just make sure that she does not have a urinary tract infection-so ask your doctor or clinic nurse to test her urine for a possible infection. Only do this if she continues to wet herself after you have tried again to train her.
