Potty Accidents- Solving Daytime Potty Accidents
Usually parents and caregivers can benefit from trying some simple ways to handle daytime wetting at home or in a daycare facility.
To address the nitty-gritty of wetting, try the following:
Devise a plan: Create an every-two-hours peeing schedule for the child who has accidents because he pees too seldomly. Let a time signal him when he needs to go so you won't have to badger.
Simplify, simplify: Irritants sometimes lead to urinary tract infections, so don't use any bubble bath products or harsh soaps. Switch to a very mild detergent. A urinary tract infection or urethral irritation can result from sensitivity to bubble bath, detergent, or to other irritant.
Dump diet don'ts: Restrict your child's consumption of caffeinated beverages, excessive water, and salty foods.
Promote complete emptying: Have your little miss straddle the toilet so that she can empty her bladder completely. Sometimes, when she's in a hurry to get back to playing, or she's keeping her legs together to keep from slipping on the toilet seat, urine may get trapped in her vagina and leak out when she stands up.
Encourage free flow: Prevent constipation by giving your child high-fiber foods: apricots, plums, prunes, raisins, vegetables, and whole-grain cereals and breads.
