Hi, I'm new here and at my wits end 😩 I have 5 children, a 10yr girl, 8yr girl & triplets GBB who turned 5 last week. I toilet trained the triplets 2yrs ago, the little girl just got it within a few days but it was the boys that took a long time to stop having accidents etc. By 4wks in they wanted no nappies at night, I went with it after my older two being 5.5yrs & 6.5yrs before being dry at night. Between the boys they had accidents at night on and off but the little girl she cracked it and I had so much confidence in her that I knew she would be dry at Pre school pick up and in the mornings. Then over a year ago the tables turned, the boys just got it and the little girl slowly went backwards. Bowels seemed to play a part, even as a baby hers always seemed slower than the boys. Anyway, she constantly has accidents every single day without fail and back in pull ups at night. They started school in sept but it all started way before starting school. 80% of the time it's the beginning of a wee, sometimes big sometimes small and can always do more on the toilet after, it's like she doesn't get the signal she needs a wee. The fact that she was dry day & night with no issues at all for over 6 months and now this, I'm just at my wits end and I'm waffling, I'm so sorry, I just don't understand it all. We are on movicol, one sachet a day and even gone up to 4 for faecal impactation, at the time I thought it made a difference and even had two dry days and thought we had dealt with the problem. We have had one paed appt and have another follow up next week, but initially told it was just a phase, she's had a scan, bladder and kidneys look fine, we've got an appt with the school nurse to help with support, hv is involved for support, I just don't know what to do. I'm sorry, I just need somewhere to talk with others who understand! Thanks for listening, Georgie, X
