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.
