Re: three year old suddenly wetting pants

When my daughter was 3, I asked my son's pediatrician about accidents, because my daughter was potty trained completely via EC at 7 months, so it was insane that she was having accidents at 3!! I asked if it was possibly a UTI, and she said "I can almost guarantee she is constipated." Sure enough, she was. I started giving her fiber gummies on a regular basis, and the accidents stopped within a week.

Oh, and I suppose I should explain-- if the colon is full, it will put excess pressure on the bladder, causing accidents.
