My 4 year old daughter keeps going through this phase of saying she needs a wee and then not going. Some days it happens once. Other days literally every 10 mins. Then she wont do it at all for weeks. My first thought was urine infection but test came back clear. My next thought was attention seeking but she does it if its just me and her without the baby, if we are out at the park, if we are indoors, etc etc.
I am taking her back to the docs tomorrow to see if there might be anything else wrong but wondered if anyone else had had this? Its driving me nuts!!

C does this too, and to make it worse she'll refuse to get off the toilet, even if she's clearly not going to go. Lifting her off causes the most horrendous screaming fits which are so embarrassing in public. Sometimes it is purely attention seeking, as she'll ask to go when she's bored doing something i.e. shopping, other times I think she thinks she wants to go, but then it just doesn't come out. She can vary from going virtually all day without going, to every 10 mins or so. I'm hoping it's yet another phase that will eventually pass.
