Talk with doctor: Infants who aren't eating and drinking may quickly become dehydrated. Your doctor will take into account the baby's age, how long he's been sick, when he last had wet diaper, if there are associated symptoms like vomiting/diarrhea. If dr. Agrees it's ok to treat at home, try giving an oral electrolyte solution like pedialyte, by a medicine syringe, about 2-5 ml every 5-10 minutes. ...Read more

My infant is showing signs of dehydration. When do I call the doctor? My baby has been ill and is having fewer wet diapers than normal. I’ve tried to give her pedialyte, but she isn’t taking much of it. At what point do I need to call her pediatrician?

Call Dr. now: Signs of dehydration include fewer wet diapers, tears and saliva that is thicker than usual. Infants may become dehydrated in just a few hours. It sounds like you've done the basics-it's time to discuss the details with your doctor. It will be much easier to treat the problem early. Good luck. ...Read more

Baby is eating good & growing.. but doesn't have more than 3-4 wet diapers a day.

Probably okay: One of the problems of advancing diaper technology has been the rise in dry babies.Not that they are not going, but the diapers materials absorb it so quickly you can only tell they go if you weigh the diapers. If the kid is thriving and this is your only concern I would just monitor things. You could invest in a postal scale but I think that would be to to much. ...Read more

Not if eating well: Babies start to urinate less often as they get older; initially, they wet with every feeding, but later, they sleep more deeply and may wet less often. If he is eating well and seems comfortable, you can wait and see what happens. If he does not void at least 2-3 times in 24 hours, call your doctor. ...Read more

How many wet diapers should my 8.5 month old have?

How many wet diapers should my 8.5 month old have?

Variable number: In infancy, we expect kids to urinate on a regular basis every 4-6 hours, day or night. The super absorbent diapers sometimes make this hard to monitor as many small voids are drawn into the dehydrating crystals in the diaper fluff. In hospitals we routinely weigh the diaper to determine output. Kids who like to drink often may go more but i worry when they go < once every 6hrs. ...Read more
