dd had a few accidents a week or so ago. in fact 3 days in a row, she had one accident per day (two were wetting herself in the morning and then waking up wet). i was just thinking, how, each time it happened, i could think of reasons (we had just travelled and she was jet-lagged, so exicted to play with my mom that she refused to pee before going to sleep, etc ....)<br><br>
i was just thinking how natural it was for me to find other reasons for her wetting. my mom was quick to pull out some training pants that she had bought but we'd never used, which i gently accepted but i am not planning to use ...

I have a June 03 girl and we also have accidents once in a blue moon (where she goes months without one and then has 2 or 3 in one day). For my DD, it is usually because she is doing something SO amazing that she can't be bothered with visiting the bathroom. For example, when we visited the aquarium last month she had 2 accidents while we were there.<br><br>
It's almost like they get majorly distracted - have an accident - then suffer temporary amnesia as to how to resume using the bathroom!<br><br>
My solution is to fall back on the timing thing (ie it's been one and a half hours since she last visited the bathroom and she's had a whole bottle of water to drink -- Better make a pitstop, even if she says that she doesn't need to go (being gentle and nonchalant about it, of course!).

yeah, every single one of my oldests accidents since he was 2 (less than 10 in 4 years) have had such an obvious reason, mostly being out somewhere when he didn't know where the bathroom was and was wrapped up in playing, which led me to start showing him the bathroom when we arrive at a new place <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> . The only other times when we couldn't see an immediate reason (like the couple of times when he's wet the bed), he would be sick by the next day. Even with my little one, who is almost 2 and almost a grad, our misses usually have an obvious reason (though more due to momma being distracted!)
