Early potty training may lead to wetting later
Children who start toilet training before age 2 have a three times higher risk of developing daytime wetting problems later, according to new research at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.
The study, involved 112 children ages 3 to 10. About half were seen in the urology department for daytime wetting or urinary urgency/frequency. They were compared to a group seen in a general pediatric clinic and pediatric emergency room who had no history of dysfunctional voiding.
A questionnaire was used to gather information on the age toilet training was initiated and the presence of daytime voiding dysfunction. Patients were grouped into three categories of potty training: early (before age 2), normal (between 2 and 3) and late (after age 3) training. Sixty percent of the early trainers had daytime wetting.
