My five and a half year old wets daily.
She’s always dry at night but often comes home from school with knickers that have clearly been wet at some point. Sometimes she’ll wet at home as well.
We know she knows when she needs the loo. If we’re out, she’ll ask to go. At home, she will take herself off to the loo. If we’re in the car and she needs to go, she will wait with no problem until we can get to a toilet. She gets up in the night, often with remembering she’d done so, to go to the toilet.
But at other times she wets and we aren’t sure why. When her Dad picked her up from school yesterday, he said he could smell urine straight away. If he can, what can others smell? We thought she wasn’t sitting on the loo properly, or wiping herself properly, but she does that ok. We think she doesn’t like to interrupt what she’s doing but aren’t sure. She doesn’t seem to care about it, she says she tries to have dry knickers and when I asked, all she said was that ‘going to the toilet is boring’.
We’ve mentioned it to the teacher who will remind her regularly.
Rewards worked once but not anymore. We’ve tried ignoring, we’ve tried talking about it but nothing has changed.
Any thoughts, anything more we can do?
