Cause 1 Year Old Child Less BAK?
why is that even though I was 1 year old and changed diapers only once?
Hello Dina, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically a 1 year old baby has not urinated and defecated as much as a newborn baby. Generally you need to change the baby's diaper 1 year 3-4 times a day in addition to changing the diaper if the baby defecates.
You should change your baby's diaper regularly to avoid the baby's diaper is too full of urine so that it becomes moist and causes rashes on the baby's skin. If you only change diapers 1 time a day because you see that baby's diapers are always dry (meaning the baby is not urinating), then you should have your baby checked immediately to the Pediatrician. Normally babies will urinate as much as 1 mL / kgBB / hour (for example your baby weighs 9 kg, then normally the baby will produce urine at least 9 mL per hour or at least 216mL of urine per day). Decreased baby urine is most often caused by the baby not drinking enough (dehydrated).
If you have given adequate amounts of drinking and the baby still urinates in small amounts, it is necessary to further evaluate other causes, such as disorders of the urinary tract, disorders of the kidneys, disorders of the heart, side effects of certain drugs, swallowing certain poisons, diseases certain causes of loss of body fluids (such as diarrhea, vomiting, bleeding in large quantities), and many other causes. Therefore, do not delay the examination to the pediatrician if you really observe the amount of urine your child is very small.
For the time being, try to give your child more drink. Children aged 1 year you should still give milk (may be breast milk or formula milk, if it is over 1 year you can also give cow's milk like UHT milk or milk that has been pasteurized). In addition, when your child eats you can also provide water for your child to drink.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
