My 3 1/2 year old is always checking her underpants, saying "I just want to see if there wet?" We of course responded by taking her to the potty. She potty trained at an early 2 years old, so this is not a new routine for her, however sometimes we do suffer from some constipation and extreme gas, we have a vary strict diet as we are Big 8 allergy free and don't consume dyes or processed sugars. She eats a vary health yet she is always checking her pants?? Is this normal behavior for a 3 year or should I be worried??
I wonder if she has the feeling she has to go or feels like she has gone a little?
Click here to see a discussion with response from Dr. Benaroch. It MIGHT be helpful. It's not exactly the same but, if she has the feeling she has gone maybe some of his techniques may change her behaviors.
