Infants Rarely Urinate After Replacing Formula?
Good night, I want to ask why my child after the second milk change which is 6 months to 12 months qo rarely pee?
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
How old is your baby? What is the volume of fluid intake in a day?
Normal urine production is 0.5-1 mL / kg body weight / hour. The most common cause of poor urination in children is a lack of fluid intake. In addition to the small volume and frequency of urination, this condition is usually characterized by a strong urine color. In addition, there are also symptoms / signs of dehydration in children, including children becoming restless / fussy or weak, thirst, decreased skin turgor, little tears, wet lip mucosa. However, the reduced urination in children can also be caused by several other possibilities, including:
Impaired kidney function
Reduced blood supply to the kidneys, for example due to bleeding
Blockage of the urinary tract
We recommend that your child be consulted directly to a doctor or pediatrician. The doctor will perform history taking, physical examination, and supporting examinations according to the indications found, for example blood and urine tests. At home, you are advised to ensure adequate fluid intake by giving milk / milk according to the wishes of the child (on demand) or at least every 2 hours. Do not delay seeing a doctor if there is red urine, vomiting, fever, or decreased awareness in children.
Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
