Hi all, I potty trained my 2 1/2 yr old daughter about 6 weeks ago. All was going fine until about 10 days ago when we have started to have little accidents, not a full on wee but enough to go thru to trousers! I've noticed she's stopped asking for the toilet and seems to be holding it until I take her to go. Has anyone else had this problem? It all seemed to start to go a bit wrong when we went away a week or so ago, maybe she has just got of routine?? Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

Lots of newly trained little ones have those little didn't quite make it in time accidents.Doesn't mean it's all going backwards,even though it does seem like it at the time.Maybe watch for signs and remind her.Introduce a reward for being dry,or at least be excited that she made it this time.If you think she needs to go ,take her.If she's in time,be pleased with her,even if she didn't initiate it herself,so you're more likely to have something to praise than an accident .Better to learn from a positive experience
A change in routine can be unsettling,so maybe just help her get there in time if that's what she needs right now.We still have occasional accidents usually if my daughter's tired or out of sorts.Hopefully it's just a little reminder or two that's needed.

Hi ladies,I'm having silmilar prob,Jc has been excellent for 8 days wee's and poo's on potty,then last 2 days has we'd on floor,and poo'd in his underpants
I realise accidents happen,but he seems determined to poo wherever now,was trying on the floor the other night until I clicked what he was up to,he then had hysterics because I asked him to sit on potty!! Feels like it's been a fluke first week????
Any tips on going back to start,as I've tried the constant reminders and not wearing bottoms for a day,any advice greatfully receievd,Thanks!
