Stopped using potty!

I have a 2yro little girl who will be 3 soon. I have a son who is 9 months. My daughter was completely potty trained and most of the time didn't even have accidents at night. Since my son was about 3 months old, she refuses to use the potty! I finally put her back in training panties and I have to use a pull up when we are out and about. I'm a stay at home mom and while we are home she wears panties with plastic covers. She refuses to use the potty now!!! Their Dr. said it is jealousy but it has been 6 months now! I'm ready to lose my mind/ pull my hair out! When she org. potty trained, she was quick and easy no problems. Now when I make her try to go, she pitches a fit! I have tried rewards systems and even stooped to candy but with little luck. Has anyone else ever had this problem? Do anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks for reading

-Have you tried not asking at all for a week or two?

-Have you had her checked for a bladder infection?

It sounds very frustrating!

I'm going with the typical jealousy.

But I also think its confusing to be basically wearing diapers, but also expected to use the potty. If you want her to use the potty, I'd ditch the covers and make her clean up the messes. I'd also make a big point in how babies wear diapers and babies don't get 'whatever'. But big girls use the potty and big girls get 'whatever'.

Otherwise, I'd just go back to diapers and wait until she's ready again.

Thanks for the tips. I did talk to her Dr. and he said she didn't have any bladder issues or infection. He said he thinks it's just jealousy too.
