Playful?: That's a touch question to answer because I'm a believer that if a parent is concerned enough to bring it up then it's perfectly fine to be evaluated. Having said that- if he is playful, tolerating liquids, urinating at least 4-6 times daily, then you don't have to rush to the emergency room and can schedule to be seen by his pediatrician.
