I need help please. I have a 4 year old daughter. She will be 5 in just a couple weeks. I have noticed over the last couple years she has been potty trained and for some odd reason she has been peeing on the floor in her room. I am not sure why she is doing to this or how often she does this. What I do know is that she pees rather frequently. It does not matter how much she has had to drink. She will pee at least every 30 minutes or so. I am not sure what can cause this but if anyone can please help I would really appreciate it. Please let me know something.

Has she had a full work-up from her pediatrician?

I highly suggest you talking to her Dr. about this - it could be something medical, or it could by psychological, but starting with her pediatrician is important, as he can direct you to help.

Take care!

Frequent urination sometimes reflects emotional tension. Punishment, criticism, or teasing also worsens the symptom.Take your child to a doctor.
