I changed my son at 5, 8 and 10 this morning and he was drenched each time in between the 2-3 hours. Could it be the orange juice?
How old is he & how : Much juice does he drink /day? The recommendation, if you choose to give juice, is no more than 4-6 oz./day, from an open-mouthed cup, at the table with meals or snacks. Your pediatrician needs to see him to check for diabetes & review his diet with you. ...Read more

Orange : Orange juice is tricky - we've been told for years how healthy it is, right? True, it has vitamin c, calcium (if you buy the calcium fortified stuff), and it tastes good, but there are a few other things to keep in mind: - an 8 oz glass of oj has almost as much sugar as a can of soda - oj has little to no fiber, so that sugar rush can cause an Insulin spike which eventually leads to high cholesterol, diabetes, high blood pressure and weight gain. Eating the whole fruit is much better for you because the fiber found in the fruit causes the sugars to be digested more slowly which avoids the Insulin spike - the stuff you buy in the carton has been processed with many chemicals to increase shelf life - even the expensive stuff! if you must have oj, it's much better to squeeze it yourself. The 2 best bits of dietary advice i can give pertaining to juice is "everything in moderation" or "bypass the juice and just eat the fruit". Your body will thank you. ...Read more
Craving sweets: You are probably just craving something sweet. Orange juice has a lot of sugar. Way too much sugar. I do not recommend drinking any fruit juice. Eating fruit is healthy but drinking them is not. It takes a lot of oranges to make a glass of juice and you don't need that much sugar. Try to drink milk and water and eat fruit. Avoid other sweet drinks like pop and gatorade as well. ...Read more
