Basic rule : If an infant is wetting at least every 6 hours and willing to drink/feed/play the output is fine.

CHECK IT OUT.: Is the salt level too high in his diet? How long has this been happening? If it is only a day or two it is no big deal. If it goes on for a week or so, then see the doc.

Yes: Decrease in urine output may indicate the start of dehydration. It is not often associated with teething. If your child is not having the same number of wet diapers, even though he is a happy child- at no time should it be dismissed as insignificant.
