Re: Question about 4 yo regressing after new baby

That happened to my 2.5 year old when I had her little sister. I just put diapers back on her and didn't make a big deal of it- it really isn't worth the frustration. Just go along with it and let her regress, she will get bored with acting like the baby and will go back to going on the potty. What really helped my older DD with getting used to the baby was every time the baby did something I would ask my DD if she taught her how to do that and I would tell her that she is such a great teacher.

I would also not make my child clean up their own accidents- I would feel terrible! Maybe if my 5.5 year old son whipped it out and purposly peed on the floor to make me mad, but that would be the only situation I could see myself giving him a rag and spray bottle for
SAHM to three wonderful monsters: Tyler 6, Alli 4 and Jilly Billy 2. And all I have to say is thank God for wine!
