How Many Times A 6 Month Old Baby Pee In A Day?
Hi my baby is already 6 months old but rarely pee in a day at least pee 4x but it’s in small amounts but appetite and mimic milk normal drinking ASI is normal or there are disturbances then when using pampers the pampers are always dry please explain
Thank you for the question.
A 6 month old baby will normally urinate 1-2 cc per kilogram of body weight per hour. The volume of urine can be divided into several times urinating. But often, in 6 hours, at least the baby will urinate once.
Your baby who urinates 4 times a day can or may not be. If your baby only consumes exclusive breast milk, often this condition can still be said to be reasonable, because the components in breast milk that can be very easily digested and absorbed by the body, so that very little is left to be excreted through urine and feces. However, if your baby is currently consuming additional food or drinks other than breast milk, then the condition should be wary of. Worried, your baby is dehydrated, which can not only occur due to lack of drinking, but can also be due to excessive sweating, excessive bowel movements, vomiting, and so on. Other factors, such as hormonal disorders, kidney and urinary tract disorders, etc. can also make babies urinate less.
Our advice, to make sure whether your baby's condition is still normal or not, you should check it directly to the doctor or pediatrician. In the meantime, to improve his condition, you should:
Give your baby more milk and water Do not give your baby extra milk other than breast milk before the age of 1 year. Recommend him with variations of MPASI with balanced nutritional value, adjust the consistency of the MPASI with the baby's age (more liquid when the baby is still 6 months old) the environment around the baby so that it is not hot and give him clothes that the material is cool, so he does not sweat excessively To make it easier to monitor baby's urine production, meanwhile, you can first give him cloth diapers. Hopefully this helps ...
