Is my infant urinating enough?

by Pearl

My son will be 6 months old on the 1st of May, he drinks plenty of fluids through out the day but only urinates a little in 10 hours is this normal?

His urine has been strong smelling since birth, but now it is just not as frequent as it should be and he drinks a lot during the day. He has what the doctor calls a buried penis so I am not sure if this affect the amount of urine I see in the diaper, but in 10 hours he may have like a fifty cent piece pee size in his diaper. It still smells strong, is this normal or should I be worried?

He doesn't cry when he urinates but sometimes at night he will cry for 30 minutes straight and for no apparent reason he won't take a bottle during this time, his diaper will be dry, his gums rubbed, and he is just screaming while you are holding him nothing will soothe him, and then he will calm down and go to sleep like nothing ever happened.

I don't know if this is related to his penis/urine problem or not. Please advise, thank you

Less Urination

by Ammukkutty

My baby is now 1 year old. He got viral fever. He is under medicine since 3 days.. But his urination is very very less that during day time he urinates 2 or 3 times only. Is it the effect of medicine?
He is taking antibiotics.

Your website is very helpful and I discovered a couple of great online stores. 'Cause I'm not a big reader, it is very nice that I can find the most important information through your website.

Thanks Heather! Your Milestone eBook is SO detailed and so correct. My son is doing all or most of the things and many are not mentioned in the usual books/sites. Great job and keep it up!

My baby refused all bottles until you showed me the MAM bottle. Thank you so much for the recommendation. I wouldn't have known about them if not for your website.
