Her pediatrician said that she needs to pee more often but I give her more and more to drink and it does not change things! I also think that she does not feel that she has to pee until her bladder is very full. She does not have the urge a lot. I hate to take her to a urologist because I know how painful those visits can be - I still have horrible visions of my procedure at one when I was 18! UG!
Any advice? I worry about her but she seems like a perfectly healthy, normal child in every other way.
There have been a few times when I was on the verge of thinking she needed to be cathed in the ER, but I have found that, when all else fails, putting her in a bathtub of warm water always makes her pee. Now that my 2yo nephew is potty training, they are having "pee contests" outside in the yard, so her competitive spirit has been good for improving her potty habits lately.

Im glad you asked this...my son who is 3 only goes 2 (maybe 3) times a day...
He wakes at 7:30am doesn't go until 10:30 am and the next time is usually at 5:30 pm. He drinks quite a bit throughout the day and I thought for sure there was something wrong with him until i read this thread... *phew*
I go on average 5-10 times a day and I thought since I am an adult and he is smaller that he would go at LEAST that many times.
He will consistently SIT on his potty (when I sit him) but nothing comes out usually except at those 2 times a day. I do however STILL have to put him in a pull-up at night and he goes sometime during the night ... but during his afternoon nap he wakes DRY. So during the most actively drinking part of the day he what...holds it?? or just doesn't feel the urge?? I dunno, but I am kinda jealous I wish i had his bladder of steel...
