Frequent Urination

by Shriya

I have a happy, healthy six month old. He is quite active - sits for some time without support, creeps on stomach all over, gets into crawling position, pulls up using low sitting couch etc.

However he urinates very often, almost 25-30 times a day, it is not few drops but proper flow. (We in India, use cloth nappies which makes it easy to understand). My pediac suggested urine test. There was no glucose , but pus cells of 4-5 hpf. After 10 days antibiotics, the urine test showed up normal. But he still urinates the same amount.

His food consists breastmilk 4-5 times a day and 4 meals of solids or semi-solids.

Now my pediac has deduced that he is fine, and maybe urinates more because he is on his tummy most of the time.

Do I have reason to be worried?

Your Boy Seems To Be Fine!
by: Baby Help Line

Hi Shriya!

How good that you took your boy to the doctor to rule out any illness. If there was no glucose and the antibiotics obviously helped, I think you can be calm.

Babies are very different in how often they pee. It is generally said that baby shoudl really wet 6-8 diapers per day when they are really young. That doesn't mean they should only pee 6-8 times per day though, it is more a measure of them drinking enough fluid.

You should of course continue to watch for signs of illness, but really, it sounds as if your boy is just fine!
