Re: my four year old had started to wet her pants why is she doing this

Hi: Just a couple of you have a new baby in the house? Also, has anything happened lately the may have caused her some sort of physical or emotional anxiety?

Many times, when a new baby arrives and the first-born is just past the potty training stage themselves, they will start regressing back in some ways, to get the attention "back" that she had before baby brother/sister arrived.

If that is not the case, and something has happened recently in the family that may have upset the normal order of things, a child may feel as they have lost some of their control or security. This sometimes causes a child to focus on what they can control, such as wetting their pants instead of going on the potty.

Just some possibilities.....hope they are helpful. cmpgirl

I agree about the new baby in the house or any other family thing that could cause urinary problems. However, if that's not the case, you may want to take her to the doc to see if maybe there is a bladder infection or something.
