Some ideas: She is at the upper end of when she should be accident free at night (pee & poop) but should be toileting during the day. You may need the assistance of a child behavior specialist to learn some tricks to get her trained. Her doc may also need to work with you to clear up any issues of stool retention/constipation that will often trigger this behavior.
