yes stickers are such a thrilling prize for a kid

Actually I would mention it to your pedi next time you go if it's still an issue because it could be a medical problem, my oldest was 4 before being diagnosed with urinary reflux and had some kidney damage from all the infections she had had that were symptomless with the exception of some fevers that were brushed off by our previous pedi. UTIs can come and go on their own, and the wetting periods could be when she's having the UTIs. My youngest had a spinal cord defect that is most commonly detected when the child starts having wetting problems. You would be amazed at what this could be a symptom of.

Also, I am surprised no one has mentioned it yet, or maybe I missed it, but get rid of the Pull Ups! They are confusing for a kid since it says "go ahead feel free to pee in your pants, even though you are almost 4"
Those are the worst invention ever.

Just quit buying the pullups. don't even have them in the house. She will learn!

RE: the pullups....

Not even at night? Seriously?

You would rather her wet the bed EVERY night?

I wish that people had a greater understanding of the neurological development needed to stop night time wetting. It often does not occur until past the 4th birthday.

My daughter used to be a night wetter as well, once when she was five, she came to me, wanting to sleep in our bed, because her bed was wet...well, I made her take the sheets off her bed, right then, and walk them all the way down to the washing machine, she was crying and carrying on the whole way, and then, she had to make her own bed, with fresh linen. I "helped" of course. She still remembers that "childhood trauma" and she is now 18! But, she never messed the bed again...another thing I used to do, some may think this is strange, but I had an M&M machine in the bathroom, the only time any one got candy was when they did "potty", so going potty was a pretty big deal in our house!

Big difference between a 5 year old and a 3 year old, though.

no kidding like putting the pullups on a 3 year old is going to suddenly make them desire to pee themselves

OP again here! No accidents at all the past 2 days. Underwear is a tad wet sometimes...not sure if she dribbles a little or what but seems to be doing fine. We WILL keep doing pull-ups at night even though it appears some disagree with this. I think nowadays with pull-ups who WOULD put their kid into bed in underwear if they pee every night in bed?

Please get her checked for UTIs if she is *dribbling* a little. Honestly, this could easily be a physical problem.

I don't think pullups at night are necessarily bad because night training is a matter of bodily readiness. Once she is dry for a few weeks when she wakes, then she can be in underwear at night.
