Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Infants aged 3 months or infants less than 1 year old will do the habit of urinating / urinating about 1-3 hours or can be less frequent, which is about 4-6 hours. So that baby urine is done is a healthy and natural condition for newborns or infants as they grow and develop. To evaluate baby urine, you should not use disposable diapers with various types of brands available, use ordinary cloth diapers, so you can know for certain whether there is urine coming out.
If your baby does not urinate in 3 days, then this is an anuria or no urination at all. And things must be confirmed immediately by a pediatrician as soon as possible, because the condition of anuria is a medical condition that is at risk of kidney function, because the baby or patient cannot properly dispose of urine so that the rest of the metabolism is still in the body. Anuria is often caused by obstruction of urine flow.
Some of the conditions below can cause complaints can not urinate in infants, namely:
1. vesicoureteral reflux, which is where the valve in the bladder does not close completely, causing urine to return to the top
2. ureteropelvic junction obstruction, where there is a blockage or narrowing in the path of the connection between the ureter and kidney
3. Block outlet obstruction, where obstacles are found in the flow of urine in the path to the urethra
4. uretrocele, where there is swelling of the ureter that does not develop normally so as to suppress the urine alira
5. disorders of the nervous system where stimulation for micturition does not go well
Because this condition is a risky condition, you should consider consulting directly with a pediatrician or pediatric surgeon. The doctor will conduct a direct examination and supporting examinations such as blood tests, radiological examinations to determine the cause of this complaint and ascertain whether a condition can not urinate at all or urinate in small volumes that may be caused by urinary tract infections or due to dehydration. So that before the clinical condition worsens or the longer the cause is unknown, immediately visit your doctor.
At this time, there is no independent business that can be done other than using cloth diapers to find out your baby's urinating habits and immediately go to the doctor.
