Does My Ten Month Old Baby Pee Enough?

Ten Month Old And Pee

My Ten month old baby boy hardly ever pees any more. He is having less than 4 wet diapers a day but is drinking as he usually does - is this this normal?

Annie's Reply:
Hi Nicole,
A 10 month old would have 4 - 6 wet diapers per day. It is hard to tell with disposables how often a child pees - with the old cloth diapers you could tell pretty quickly when a baby has urinated, but a disposable may well take several pees before it seems wet. So he might be urinating more often but it doesn't get sodden until a couple of pees.

He may also have slightly better bladder capacity than the average and will also be able to hold on longer than when he was tiny. But he still needs to empty out, and if he is sick or if it is really hot, then you need to make sure he is having extra fluids. Make sure you are offering water as well as any milk. If you give him juice, make sure it is very watery - a glass of apple juice is like several apples and has a lot of fructose in it.

If his pee is very strong smelling and dark yellow, that is an indication that he is not having enough fluids.

So although he is in the low end of wet diapers, it is hard to measure how many times he pees, and how much. If his diapers are really sodden, then I would think there may well be a couple of pee's. If they are only damp, then he is probably not be getting enough fluids.

Of course with any baby, if he is unwell, or you are concerned you must see your peadiatrican to make sure all is well.

There are several other pages on my site with similar questions, so you can find out some ideas for increasing the amounts of fluids your child has.
