In brief: Wet Diapers

We track a baby's intake, and their hydration status, by following how many wet diapers they are creating.
Infants under a month of age should make at least 4 a day. Sick children with stomach flu should have 3 a day, with at least one being heavy. If your are seeing less than this, contact your healthcare provider.

In brief: Look for "fluid-ity"

Good urine output, acting vigorous, moist mouth and eyes, real tears when crying - these are all signs to suggest adequate hydration.
Your pediatrician can help you know for sure.
