when you say she was dry at night for months, was she not peeing at all, or just able to wake up and express her need for the potty?
are you tandem nursing? if so, it might be a consequence of increased milk consumption.
it is sometimes the result of a food sensitivity. it might be worth just keeping some notes about what she eats and when she's most likely to pee to see if there's any correlation. some moms with EC'd little ones notice a dramatic reduction in urinary frequency when they eliminate dairy, gluten, soy, etc. in fact there was a thread here recently talking about the kinds of foods that increase urinary frequency (like watermelon) not necessarily because of a sensitivity but just because they have that. effect on people. so perhaps there is something in her diet that wasn't there when she was mostly dry at night that could be causing it?
then again it could be normal regression after the birth of a sibling, or it could just be normal for her at this stage of development (like she's having a growth spurt and her bladder hasn't caught up yet). but i think it's worth ruling out potential external causes so that you can relax about it if you conclude that it's just normal for her at this point in time.
congrats on your new LO, BTW!
