True constipation may take many months to have under control. Children are encouraged to get to know their body and taking note of their own bowel actions for a week or two.

Day wetting can be a sign of overactive bladder (OAB) in children 7 or over. This is different from the normal toilet training stage. Day wetting is not caused by naughtiness, laziness. If your child has wet underwear most days and the distinct odour associated with it, please see your GP or paediatrician.
