Our expert says:
Presumably they put him in nappies because he was wetting the bed, rather than without obvious reason ? Its quite common for a child who is emotionally upset by something happening in his life, to slip back a stage in their achievement of goals like toilet training. Is there anything apparent that might hav e upset him during this particular stay ? Has someone talked with the mom and grandmom, about what they noticed ?
Maybe there's a new boyfriend and this in some way upset him ; maybe he was missing his dad due to the longer stay. Spoken to gently, what does the boy himself say about how he felt ?
Maria correctly outlines the best way to handle a resumption of bedwetting, rather than the more discouraging replacement of nappies.
As Anon says, routine is very important to kids and changing this, for whatever reason, often upsets them, though fortunately, not usually for long.
