In brief: Dehydration

Some features may vary with age, because some children can voice what they are feeling and others cannot.
Symptoms also vary with severity of dehydration. Basic symptoms of dehydration include thirst, decreased urine production, dark or strong smelling urine, fatigue, weakness, cramps, headache or lightheadedness, to name some. If concerned about this, discuss with your child's doctor.
