My 2.5yo has been fully toilet trained with no accidents for about 7 months now. In the last week she has started having accidents again. None of my other kids ever had any regression with toilet training so I have no idea why she is suddenly having issues? Has anyone else’s little ones gone through a toilet training regression?

  • Did you figure this out? Was it something else she was anxious about?

  • maybe the house has been super busy so bub is distracted and forgetting to go to the potty! sometimes they love playing too much lol

  • Do you think it is another issue causing her anxiety ? It may not be the toilet training itself but something else causing it . Did something happen before the regression , see if you can backtrack anything .

  • Yes, we had the same problem with our little boy. He suddenly flatly refused to use the toilet. He hated and never used a potty. He put him back in nappies. When he started to show interest again, we re-started toilet training. Now at 3 y.o. he get so involved with what he is doing that he wets his pants before he gets there. We sometimes make out we are going to the toilet then he decides he has to go first.

  • I haven’t experienced regression, but I’m currently trying to toilet train my daughter and she has gone from being excited to use the potty and using it my herself several times, to suddenly being afraid of it and getting hysterical every time I make her sit on it. I don’t know what happened or what to do about it. Just persevering and hope it’s just a phase.
