Children Aged 18 Months Often Urinate Every 3 Hours?
Met the night … I want to ask how many times is it normal for an 18 month old child to pee. The color of my child is almost 3 hours and the diapers are full and leaky. Is that normal? Thanks
Hello Lis, Thank you for the question.
The frequency of a baby's BAK is a sign that is often noticed by parents because this information can indicate the level of hydration of the baby's body. A baby can urinate as often as every 1-3 hours or at least every 4-6 hours, depending on fluid intake (breast milk, formula milk, water) and ambient temperature. Thus, the frequency of your child's BAK is still classified as normal. In addition to the frequency of urination, please pay attention to the color of the baby's urine, whether the baby looks fussy, and has a fever. Normally, baby's urine will be clear or dark yellow. If it's dark yellow, it's a sign that your baby is not drinking enough. Noteworthy is if there are blood spots on the diaper. If you find blood spots on the diaper, please consult your pediatrician immediately. You also don't need to worry about this condition as long as your child does not look fussy when urinating and there is no fever. You are also advised to visit the nearest emergency room if your child has not had a total of 6 hours. In these conditions, the doctor will conduct further examinations and provide treatment immediately.
Hopefully this information helps you.
