The Urine Of A 7 Month Baby Is Orange?
Assamu’alaikum, r nI want to ask, my child is 7 months old. R nI’ve 2x seen a little urine colored orange in his diapers. R nWhy is that? is it dangerous? what should I do? r nThank you
Hello Rihana, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Orange urine can be a normal condition, but it may not. Orange colored urine can occur when the baby is not drinking enough and the urine becomes thicker and sometimes the baby can excrete urate crystals from the urine in this condition. This urate crystal can provide orange coloring like bricks on baby diapers. Another cause of baby's urine turning orange is infection of the urinary tract. In this condition, usually the baby will experience other symptoms such as crying when urinating, urinating, fever, vomiting, decreased appetite, etc.
For now you can try to give more to your child to drink. Because now the child is 7 months old, also give water when the child eats and give the milk / milk formula as usual. If the child experiences other symptoms as mentioned above, immediately take the child to the pediatrician for further evaluation.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
