The Cause Of Babies Aged 2 Months Urinating Frequently?
Good morning..I mo Tanya I have a baby aged 2 months. Everyday my child can pee 30 ×. My child is breastfed. Is that normal thing or not. Thanks
Hello Lis Rosmayati,
The frequency of urinating for babies aged 2 months is generally 5-6 times a day or every 4-6 hours. Normal urine is clear or slightly yellow in color and does not have a strong smell. The volume of urine indicates the adequacy of the baby's body fluids. Normal baby urine output is between 1-2 cc / kg / hour. In hot weather, babies generally urinate less, because the fluid is released in other forms such as sweat.
An increase in the frequency of baby urine can be caused in addition to high intake (drinking a lot of breast milk), it can also be due to diseases such as:
Urinary tract infection. Usually accompanied by symptoms of fever, the baby is restless or cries every time urinating, urine color is abnormal or reddish
Diabetes mellitus type I. In addition to increased urinary frequency, usually accompanied by complaints of the baby's weight not increasing, the baby is always thirsty and hungry, a sweet smell that is characteristic of the baby's breath. Generally these symptoms only appear in adolescence, but can also appear in infancy.
If this continues, it is best if the child is taken to be examined directly by a pediatrician. The doctor will take anamnesis regarding the history of complaints, child labor, family history of disease, and so on. The doctor will perform a physical examination as well as supporting examinations if necessary such as a blood laboratory and urine analysis.
Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
