A healthy baby will: Drink water if thirsty. The beauty of breast-ferding is that it is sufficient for hydration in countries whose water supply may be contaminated. His pediatrician will look for medical causes of proteinuria. Urate crystals can be seen in the diapers of healthy breast-fed babies. If your baby is dehydrated from sweating ; is not gaining weight appropriately, his doctor may test for cystic fibrosis.
