Wow, i am surprised that this thread is still on the front page after 3-4 years.

So, it looks like there is a upper secondary school girl somewhere still wearing pampers to school...

I hope that she has at least mastered pooing.
There is no way to hide it if she poo her pampers in school because it will be too smelly. But maybe she can have a normalish live if she can control her poo. Peeing only should be ok as long as her pampers dont leak. Or dont smell too much like pee....

Hi mummies,
My daughter is turning 4 soon, she recently had UTI. Luckily with medicines, she has recovered although she needs to go for a check up in 6 months time. Her doc says i need to give her lots of water and medicine to make her poo daily so that she won't have constipation, it causes her UTI. another thing is, sometimes, she controls her urine even though i tell her not too. I would bring her to the toilet even though she struggles. If lucky, she will pee. If not, she will refuse until it's her bath time than she will pee. Sometimes, she would pee alot in her diapers, other times, i have to tell her nicely to pee and not control, than she''ll cooperate.. she is starting school in jan, for a long time, i've already told her that if you need to pee or poo, you must let your teacher know. We even role play it a number of times. I'm just worried when she starts school, she will forget and start to control again. Should i let her wear or not wear diapers when she is at school? If she controls, her UTI will be back. On the other hand, if she wear diapers, will she learn to let the teacher knows that she needs to pee and poo?

Hi Kalsa,

You should not let your daughter wear pampers to school. She needs to learn how to go to the toilet and tell her teacher that she needs to go.

She is just going to grow dependent on pampers if she keeps wearing them. What if she still needs pampers in primary or secondary school? It will be an disaster!

Hello! I'm new here and just read this thread. I agree with some of the parents here that she needs to learn how to use the toilet independently soon. How is she now?

Hi mum3! Just came across this thread. How is your daughter now? I hope she had a smooth transition from wearing pampers to being completely free from them.
