Hi Mia,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Unlike adults, babies generally produce more urine, which is about 1 cc per kilogram of body weight per hour. So, determining whether your baby's urine production is normal or not, ideally should be done by monitoring his urine volume every 24 hours.


In general, babies will urinate every 1 to 3 hours, or at least 4 to 6 times per day. However, there is no specific benchmark every hour once a baby has to urinate. Some of the following factors can make your baby urinate less often:

Drink a little
Consuming breast milk (compared to formula milk)
Babies hold back urination --- for example due to improper toilet training procedures that traumatize the baby
Sweating a lot --- even if your baby is in a hot environment

Throws up
Diarrhea
Experiencing massive bleeding
Impaired kidney function, and so on

So, as explained above, hot weather conditions, which often make excessive sweating, may be one of the triggers for your baby to urinate less often. This is very natural to happen.


You need to be alert if your baby does not urinate at all in 24 hours, urinates very infrequently with very little volume and very dark urine color, or if signs of dehydration appear, such as sunken crown, dry eyes and mouth. , the baby looks very thirsty or is lazy to drink, the baby is fussy or has decreased consciousness, the skin pinch test takes a very long time (more than 2 seconds). If this danger sign appears, immediately consult your child to the doctor for proper treatment.


In the meantime, you should make sure your child gets enough fluid intake, namely by breastfeeding and drinking lots of water. Also give him food with soup and fruits that contain lots of water, such as watermelon, papaya, banana, and so on. Teach your baby not to hold his pee. If necessary, avoid using disposable diapers to monitor urine production.


Hope it helps ya..
