Hi I'm mother of 3. 5 year old daughter. Until she turn 3 years , we never bothered about keeping her in diapers during nights. Recently we stopped diapers on possible days( keeping diapers on travels and some occasion s where we may not have acess/ don't want to use public toilet s. ) So far, she used to at least inform us for toilet in day time. But now after stopping diapers on nights especially even day time she started passing wherever she is. Though we are constantly asking to inform/ go to washroom, she is ignoring. Same during nights. We are seriously tired of changing bed sheets, her dress and our dresses also sometimes during sleep. Help me with this situation.child-psychology Corner
Give her some time to get used. Keep reminders and take her to the rest room. Make her sit for few minutes. Also involve her when you have to wash all the soiled clothes. She can help in folding the clothes when they are dried She can carry them to the respective wardrobe. These Errands will take time. Her play time or entertainment time will automatically get reduced. Also create a chart where you reward her with stars or stickers when she attempts to go to the bathroom. Appreciate her. And give her a small treat. Gradually she will learn not to soil herself.
