Refusing to sit on potty seat

Hi mommies.. my daughter is 18months old.. I had started to make her sit on the potty seat to pee and poo since she was 9 months old.. and things were going on fine. Until recently, when she got ill.. she is plain refusing to sit on the potty seat, since almost 10 days now. The problem is that sometimes she tells me that she wants to pee but doesn't want to go to the bathroom and neither wants to pee in her pyjamas. .she just holds it in.. really worried about the sudden change in her behaviour. Any ideas, or anyone who has experienced a similar situation? thanks in advance!

hi aabha.. yes we need to continue taking them to the pot seat. my daughter started creating a lot of fuss going to the bathroom coz during sickness she got constipated too and she started fearing to pee also. this can be the case with ur baby too. so ensure ur kid drinks lots of water. i can fully understand how daunting task it is to make the kid understand and to make her sit on the pot seat. but u need to try and try. also i showed videos and pics of babies happily sitting on the pot seat to my baby to tell her that all babies pee and poop happily. this helped in overcoming her fear. try this if it helps and just don't give upm

hi yes i experience the same every time my 3 year old daughter gets sick.. she too refuses to sit on the pot seat. she was potty trained since she was 7 to 8 months old. but every time she falls sick she refuses to sit on the pot seat. we spoke to doc. he said it is perfectly fine. just make sure to give plenty of water when the child is sick to help her to pee n poo better amd easily. we have to be very pateint with the kid and keep on trying lovingly until the child overcomes the fear.
