Sick Babies Need More Fluids
by: Annie Desantis

Hi Mary,
When babies get sick they need more fluids to help clear the infection. If you think she is drinking as normal, but not peeing, then it could be time to take her to your doctor. Does she have a temperature? Babies can dehydrate very quickly, and if she is using up her fluids to try to keep her temperature down then she may not be getting enough fluids.

The fact that she is drinking, is a good sign, when children are really ill, it can be hard to get them to have anything much. Try giving her watered juice, ice cubes, water melon or juicy things to play with, she will suck on them and get some extra fluids that way. Ice blocks made with watered down juice are great too.

It is hard with babies because they can't tell us what is wrong! Sometimes little children can have an ear infection, and as parents we don't realize. If in doubt, it pays to get her checked out, she may have developed a secondary infection from the cold.

best of luck,
