Jaundiced/dehydrated: If he is a newborn and jaundiced, the yellow color may be him getting rid of the extra bilirubin (yellow) in his blood. Otherwise, he may be a bit dehydrated until your milk comes in. This is normal for the first couple of days. If he has been sick or vomitting, dark yellow urine can be a sign of dehydration and he should be seen by his physician.

No: How long you are able to go without passing urine is a function of the size of the bladder and the strength of the sphincter. Avoiding urination can cause dilation of the bladder and can lead to bladder or kidney infections. Your bladder is a muscle but when it is stretched with too much urine it actually is weaker and contracts less efficiently when you do go to urinate.
