Hi all,<br>
My 4yr old ds has recently been having urine accidents quite frequently. I thought part of it was that he is "too busy" to stop what he is doing an just lets a little out. Usually it is just enough to get his undies wet...but once every couple days his pants are completely soaked. I am a little worried that it may be a physical issue. Yesterday he peed a little in his pants 3 times and then the last time (before bed) his pants were soaked. I had him take off the pants (who knows how long they had been that way) and go into the bathroom to wash his hands and pee if needed. Well as I opened the door to see what was going on I found him in front of the sink w/urine all over the floor.....<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:<br>
Please help me....have any of you gone through this? What is going on? He has been out of cd's since he was 2, added ds2 when he was 3 w/no regression issues....when I ask him if he feels the need to go he says "yes" and when I ask him why he goes in his pants he says "I don't know".....its come to the point where dh thinks we should cd's back on ds, but I don't know if that is the best decision.<br>
TIA

Okay....now he just went into the bathroom to have a bm and when I went in there to see if he was done there was poop in his undies and on the toilet seat <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/angry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="angry"> I don't know why, but it makes me so angry (well actually I do, since I know this is the way my very nonAP parents reacted to things we did)....Please help....I don't want to loose it on my ds...but I don't know how to react or what to say to this situation. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

Is anything else going on with your family?? New school? Move? New baby?<br><br>
I know that DS1 went back to wetting himself when he got back from vacation in Sepetember, but it stopped soon after. (Maybe a week?)<br><br>
Could he simply want more attention from you? I would make sure he's doing the cleaning up, but other than that, try (it's hard not to get angry, I know) not to make a big deal about it. See if it resolves on its own.

Can he tell you why he's doing it?<br><br>
Is he just too busy to stop what he's doing and pee or poop?<br><br>
I think I'd put him back on a potty schedule for a little while, not in punishment, but just as practice.

my ds is going through the same thing! or at least he was over the holidays. i think boys (not sure about girls because i do not have one) have a hard time with change in their schedules.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug"> so i just started him back on a potty schedule and that seemed to have helped and now that we are back on a normal routine he is fine. it happens every time their is change...and i mean even if i change the kind of cereal he eats with out telling him.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: there is a thread on here all for parents of four year olds and you can read about all kinds of wonderful behavior from these little creatures! good luck and dont worry! other moms are right there with you.
