Hello, Rommy Setiawan. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
First of all, we need to ask a few questions regarding your complaint. Does your child currently have complementary food (MPASI)? How much milk and other fluids consumed in a day? Does the urine also change color and smell? Are there any accompanying symptoms, for example the child becomes more fussy or becomes weak, fever, and weight loss?
In general, a normal urine volume is 0.5-1 mL / kgBB / hour. Practically, babies should urinate more than 6 times in 24 hours. If calculated based on the diapers used, this size is roughly equivalent to at least 6 disposable diapers or 8 cloth diapers in 24 hours.
Complaints about reducing baby's urine can be caused by several possibilities, including:
Lack of breast milk and fluid intake from MPASI
Acute diarrhea that causes dehydration
Kidney disorders, for example due to urinary tract infections
We recommend that your child be examined directly by a pediatrician to receive the necessary evaluation and treatment. The doctor may perform a supplementary examination in the form of a blood test. At home, it is recommended to give your baby enough milk and other fluids from MPASI.
Such is our explanation. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
