No: This suggests most likely that the urine is concentrated and the baby needs more fluids, particularly if the baby is otherwise doing well.

No: In general, urine should be clear to pale yellow. Dark yellow or strong smelling urine is often a sign of being somewhat dehydrated. Try increasing fluids and see how the urine responds. If it stays dark yellow in spite of increased fluid intake and baby is urinating at least 5-6 times per 24 hours, you may have to have your doctor examine the baby and their urine for other issues.
