Rylee's potty training regression has continued and actually gotten worse. In the last two weeks, it has gotten to a point that she just completely stopped going potty on the toilet at all unless we made her go. She had been going independently, so it's been pretty frustrating to see her completely not care if she wets her pants every single time. I'm not talking about an accident or three a day. I'm talking about how the other day she spread her legs (while standing, wearing shorts) and just peed all over the floor. Then 45 minutes later she took a squat in front of the couch and peed. Not little piddles in the panties, but complete puddles on the floor. I've spent a lot of time cleaning up pee in the last two weeks, but that day was my breaking point and she is now back in pull-ups.
This morning, Rylee took her pull-up off and then proceeded to pee on her (carpeted) bedroom floor. I finally decided that I needed to call her pediatrician to rule out if there is a physical reason why this is happening, rather than a behavioral thing. They wanted to see her today!
She does not have a UTI, which I didn't think she did, but it's good to at least know for sure. At this point, her doctor thinks it most likely is related to her constipation. Constipation has always been an issue for her. It was a constant throughout our whole potty training so far, so I didn't think it was that since it's nothing new and hasn't changed at all.
We've been treating her constipation with a dried prune almost every day, along with probiotics, and occasional prune juice. Starting tomorrow we will be adding in Miralax, with a follow up doctor appointment in a month. Let's hope this works
