We've tried pling off and on the last six months or so, and dd has developed a potty phobia. Up until now she's refused (kicking, screaming, banchee tantrums) to pee on the potty. She also will not pee without a diaper on (up until now). Meaning, she won't have an accident. She'll hold her pee for up to 15 hours until she can't physically hold it anymore then will scream bloody murder when she finally pees either down her leg or on the potty if I can get her there. So obviously that doesn't work. We totally dropped the whole issue a month ago, put the potties in the closets, figured she'll do it when she's ready. Which doesn't bother me, I can wait. The problem is, now she doesn't want to pee in her diapers either. Every time she has to go she says "I don't want to pee, I don't want to pee!" and will hold it as long as she can, even while in a diaper! So if I can't get her to pee on the potty and now she doesn't want to pee in her diapers WHAT DO I DO???? This kid is killing me!!! Has anyone dealed with a kid just not wanting to pee, period? My first thought was UTI, but she's so verbal, and hasn't said anything about it hurting. She was constipated yesterday and told us over and over that it hurt to poop. The last tooth that came in she was able to tell us her tooth hurt. So I think if it was hurting to pee she'd tell us, you know? She did the same thing this morning when she woke up. She's sleeping through the night in panties and has no accidents. She wakes up and we put a diaper on so she will pee. The last two mornings it's been around 10 before she'll finally pee after sleeping all night! She fidgets and does the "I don't want to pee! I don't want to pee!" thing while wanting to be held and acting generally uncomfortable. I can deal with physical illnesses, but this psychological stuff is tricky!! We are constantly talking about what makes your body healthy, how it's important to eat good food and drink lots of fluids and that peeing and pooping keeps your body healthy and strong. She just has some fear, or other issue that I can't figure out and can't talk her out of. I am taking her to the doctor this week, so we'll see if she has any advice. This is nuts. Kids!!!
