Small abscess?: Difficult to say without a pic, but you may have a small abscess that is draining. If so, the area would be red in addition to being tender. If this is the case, it would require local and possibly systemic antibiotics. I'd see your doctor soon before a possible infection spreads. ...Read more

Sounds normal...: Urine certainly can have an ammonia-like smell and will be more pronounced after time has gone by and some of the water evaporates making what remains in the diaper more concentrated. If you are noticing pain with urination (crying at the time), blood, or fevers - see the pediatrician to ensure no UTI. Otherwise, be prompt with diaper changes to help prevent skin irritation. ...Read more

8wk old formula fed, whether 1 urination in diaper or a full diaper baby's pee smells...a concern? Or is that normal? Baby eats very well!

Odd urine odor may be caused by accumulation of smelly metabolic precursors or byproducts or possibly UTI with urea-splitting bacteria. In a healthy, asymptomatic, and thriving baby who is growing well, without fevers or vomiting, it's likely ok, but you should call your pediatrician so they can ask more questions. ...Read more
