So my toddler was potty trained by age 2. she is almost 3 now and for at least 6 months she has been holding her urine for the longest time and she's afraid to pee.
We have seen the pediatrician numerous times about this and has things analyzed to be sure there wasn't a UTI. Always negative.
On average she only pees 3 times in 24 hours and she drinks all day.
It's very strange. she also never has had an accident. EVER. I'm thankful for no accidents but isn't that strange?
Anyone else dealing with this?

yeah, my dd hardly ever goes. to me its normal and she never looks like she's uncomfortable or anything, and she drinks quite a bit, so I guess I just don't worry about it. My friend who watched DD for me sometimes thinks its very very strange. lol What does she know? ;)

DS1 goes all the time. We can't go to a store without visiting the bathroom at least once.
DS2 is like your dd. He never goes. When he does he pees for a long time! He refuses to go in a toilet he isn't familiar with-which means he winds up waiting a long time. Saturday we went out of town- left at 7 a.m. Returned at 4 and he didn't go until we got home. No accidents though.

I'm glad you posted this. My daughter still goes pretty frequently, but if she starts holding it longer I would have thought something was wrong too.
Thanks for the heads up.

I havent experienced this with my children, but my mother has told me stories about how I did it when I was younger. I went to daycare 2 or 3 days a week and refused to go all day until my mom came to pick me up, as soon as she walked in the door we would have to run to the bathroom together :) I turned out perfectly normal, so I wouldnt worry about it! I also know my neighbors daughter was 3 and refused to go on the toilet, their Dr prescribed something that made her go...I dont really agree with this route, but it might be nice to know in advance that it is out there, incase a Dr brings it up as an option someday.
