Help with little accidents

My 3.5 year old DD has been potty trained (daytime only) for about 8 months now.  Ever since she got the hang of it she's been great, very very few accidents.  Lately, though, she's been having "little" accidents.  By that I mean that she will wait so long that she will pee just a little in her underwear before she goes to the potty.  We usually figure out she needs to go when she grabs herself, but I think by then she has already leaked a little.  We have been going through 4-5 pairs of underwear a day lately!

What can I do to help avoid this?  I've been trying an incentive with allowing her to have an M&M if her underwear is dry when she goes on the potty, but although she asks for the M&M every time, it doesn't seem to be motivating her enough.  I was thinking of getting her a watch with a timer that could be set to go off every so often to remind her to go, what do you think of that?

TIA!!

  • Do a potty routine.  Instead of waiting til she shows signs or says she has to go, every 1-2 hours tell her it is time to go potty.  that way she can retrain on how to go before she has to go really badly.

  • I could have written this post myself!  DD has been completly potty trained for a year and a half now, and these past 2 weeks she keeps having the same little accidents.

    We are trying a backwards approach.  Currently if DD stays in her bed all night she gets a sheet of stickers in the morning.  This morning I told her that if she pees in her underware she will lose her sheet of stickers.  We will see how this goes.
