OMG, I could SCREAM!! My middle DD will be 4 in August. She has been reliably potty trained since she was 26 months old. At the time I was so proud of her because she did it all by herself, with no pushing or prodding from me.<br><br>
For the last month or so she has been wetting the bed every night, so we started putting her in diapers at night. Now she is peeing in her pants only, refuses to use the potty. We have ruled out physical illness, and she hasn't suffered any emotional trauma. I don't think she is jealous of her baby sister (11 months) because she spends every moment playing with her and making her laugh, and I don't think she is jealous of the new baby either because she loves to rub my belly and feel baby kicking.<br><br>
Also when she gets mad at me for disciplining her, she will go in their bedroom, pull down her pants, and pee on her bed. I took her mattress away (because it was soooo nasty from being peed on) so she was sleeping on her sleeping bag for a few days, and during those few days she would pee on her older sister's bed when got mad at me. So now they are both on sleeping bags until I come up with enough money to buy TWO new mattresses. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:<br><br>
I don't know what her deal is and I don't think I even came here for suggestions... just had to vent about this. Its just one of those days I guess.

She could be anxious about the impending baby without being jealous. She could be anxious and excited even, but just anxiety alone, without jealousy, can cause that.

make sure you spend some one on one time with her and assure her that she is not losing you at all. she might not act like it, but the peeing is a sure sign for attention. I have seen it happen often, usually scheduled one on one time works
