Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

The objective of this study was to determine if later toilet training is associated with urge incontinence in children.

METHODS:

We used a case-control study design to yield level 2 evidence.

RESULTS:

Initiation of toilet training after 32 months of age was associated with urge incontinence (P=0.02).

CONCLUSION:

For children who display signs of toilet-training readiness, training should be initiated prior to 32 months of age to reduce the risk for urge incontinence.
