Infants Aged 4 Months Often Cry Before Urinating?
. My son is 4 months old. Every time I want to pee, I must scavenge and think if it is natural for a baby. My child does not wear flat.
Thank you for the question.
Need to be clarified, how many times a day and how often does your baby urinate? Do you notice blood, strong odors, or abnormal urine color when you urinate? Does he also have a fever, vomiting, lazy breastfeeding, colic, penis redness, swelling, eruption, or other complaints? How many times has he experienced complaints like this?
Crying and straining when a baby will urinate does not always indicate an abnormal condition. This can happen naturally because he is sleepy, hungry, his diaper is wet, or the condition of the surrounding environment is uncomfortable. However, if you find other complaints, for example, your baby is rarely urinating, urinating often but little, urine containing blood, dark color, strong odor, or other heavier complaints as mentioned above, then you need to be vigilant. It could be, the condition refers to urinary tract infections, kidney disorders, inflammation of the intimate organs (for example due to infection, allergies, or irritation), and many other possibilities. Some anatomic disorders of the urinary tract, such as hypospadias, fistulas, etc. can also cause complaints like this. Depending on the cause, this condition can later be handled differently.
What needs to be done now, try to give your baby more milk every 2-3 hours. Avoid giving extra food or drink to babies before they are 6 months old. Make sure you always maintain the cleanliness of your baby's intimate organs, do not carelessly give him powder, cream, soap, or other chemicals without consulting a doctor first. Also give babies loose, soft clothing, and prioritize the use of cloth diapers or disposable diapers, which are soft and have high absorbency. If with the steps above your baby's condition still does not improve, we recommend that you check it directly to the doctor or pediatrician so that it is given the right treatment according to the cause of the complaint huh ..
I hope this helps.
