My little girl is 3.5 yrs old and she's not fully potty trained yet.She has a bad diaper rash that comes and goes. What should I do?

Different rashes: There are two broad categories of diaper rash - infections and irritative. The infections can include yeast or bacterial. Irritation rashes are usually due to urine or stool contents irritating the skin. It's hard to tell without looking at the rash which it is, and the treatment varies greatly depending on what the cause is. If this keeps coming and going, its time for your pediatrician to peek! ...Read more

My 6yo daughter still wets her bed every evening. She is potty trained during the day. Is this normal for a 6yo to use diapers at night?

My 6yo daughter still wets her bed every evening. She is potty trained during the day. Is this normal for a 6yo to use diapers at night?

No: If she has never achieved bladder control since birth (primary enuresis), she may respond well to ddavp(urine concentrating hormone) therapy. In case of poor response, alarm device attachable to underwear would be next treatment option which provides higher success rate. If bedwetting is a new event to her, a number of things have to be checked out, e.g., diabetes, bladder infection, etc. ...Read more

Enuresis: Bedwetting (nocturnal enuresis) in a 5 year old is likely to resolve as she matures, discuss simple techniques with your pediatrician or see a urologist for treatment options. Bedwetting alarms, evening fluid restrictions or prescription DDAVP (desmopressin) are all appropriate considerations at this age and older. ...Read more

Why does it take some kids longer to be potty trained? Like until age 10-11?

Why does it take some kids longer to be potty trained? Like until age 10-11?

Delay maturity: You probably mean that they are delayed in stopping bed wetting at night. If they are not able to control their bladder or bowels during the day after age 3y, they need to consult with Pediatrician. Inability to control bladder in bed at night is due to delayed maturity. Could run in families. Everyone eventually gets dry at night, although the age this occurs varies. Bladder training can help ...Read more

I wonder why I can remember having my diaper changed as a baby at daycare. Now I feel so safe if I wear one. Is it ok to wear them?

I wonder why I can remember having my diaper changed as a baby at daycare. Now I feel so safe if I wear one. Is it ok to wear them?

Personal choice...: Is it okay with you? If the answer to that is yes, you don't need to seek outside approval for your personal choice. If you are not okay with your tendency to be drawn to wear a diaper, then consider speaking to a psychologist to get at the core of why they make you feel safe (and why you don't feel safe regardless). Take care. ...Read more

3 month caution: 3 months is an age where infections and dehydration may be serious, so a visit to the MD may be in order. On the upside, a few mucous stools while still feeding well is typically nothing to worry about. Kids who eat well are very rarely if ever seriously ill. ...Read more
