Yes, my son is four and STILL not potty trained.
Booboo definitively has an overactive bladder. For example, yesterday I tried putting him in underwear AGAIN using the "special underwear" which I had originally bought for Sissy and am proud to say she no longer needs them anymore! The underwear have sensors in them which set off an alarm if they get even a little wet. That way I would know immediately if he peed.
I put the underwear on him around 2:00, he peed at:
Then I put a pull-up back on.
Not once did he tell me or try to use the bathroom and I kept asking him if he needed to go and even took him several times with no luck. Each time after he peed I would set him on the potty and the first time he went more on the potty.
I don't know what to do. How can I keep him in underwear if he is just going to pee in them all day long every 20-50 minutes... Not to mention the risk of having him pee on my couch, his bed and the rugs. Also if he is in underwear were trapped in the house...
What if he doesn't actually know he has to pee?
Very rarely he will tell me, "Mommy I have to go Potty", Ill take him, sometimes he goes, sometimes he doesn't. More often he tells me "Mommy I peed" after he pees in his pull-up.
I take him to the bathroom regularly throughout the day, I have even tried taking him every 20 minutes. All with mixed results.
He also has constipation problems. I have gotten him to sit and go poo on the potty a few times when he has been struggling to go. But lately when I ask he always refuses. I cant/don't want to force him.
I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO! Help!
