    Default Re: dehydration

    As far as I know...

    Dry chapped/flaking lips.
    Absense of tears in a baby who previously had tears.
    Fatigue, weak cry.
    Loss of elasticity in skin.
    Dark coloured, strong smelling urine; few wet diapers.
    Sunken soft spot.

    There are probalby others, but those are the ones I remember.

    eta: Here is a good link that explains the signs very well: http://www.askdrsears.com/html/8/t081300.asp
