Bladder Control


It is more difficult for a child to control her bladder than her bowels.The development of bladder control occurs when your child's bladder can hold more than a few ounces of urine without spontaneously emptying itself. Getting through the night with a dry diaper is the ultimate step in bladder control and toilet training.

When does the development of bladder control occur

The development of bladder control occurs when your child's bladder can hold more than a few ounces of urine without spontaneously emptying itself. The first sign of bladder control is when your baby's diaper remains dry after a reasonable amount of time has elapsed. Your child will soon be able to go through her nap with a dry diaper. Once she is capable of warning you that she wants to go to the potty, you can stop making her wear diapers completely. Be prepared for accidents and do not scold her when they happen. It is not her fault.
 

When do I know she is completely toilet trained

It is more difficult for a child to control her bladder than her bowels.  Signs of an imminent bowel movement are also easier for parents to spot than signs of urination. Once the child has control over her bladder, she is reaching the point of being completely toilet trained. A two and a half year old child often finds it difficult to hold urine for more than four to five hours. Getting through the night with a dry diaper is the ultimate step in bladder control and toilet training.

my son is 3 years and 4 months old. he is completely potty trained for a year now. but just last month or so he has started controlling his bladder for long time. he would not sit on any potty seat other than the one at our home. he would just try to control it to the point his belly starts hurting.
can any one please help me in knowing what can i do to help him? are there any serious risks around this?
