    I have heard thats normal when they sleep through the night. My dd is 6 months and has never slept through the night so I am not sure. I wouldn't panic though.

    Hi Mama,
    You goal for a well hydrated baby is between 5-6 wet disposable diapers (6-8 in cloth diapers) in a 24 hour period. If you are seeing the bare minimum of this then you have little cause for alarm. Are you nursing during this period at all? Does your baby seem active and alert during waking hours?

    My Lo is the same way, when he sleeps all night his diaper is barely wet, but when he wakes to nurse it weighs 2 lbs in the morning.

    I think they can learn to hold it pretty young.

    My DS did the same thing, when he started sleeping through the night, he'd have little to no pee. He's active and healthy to this day, so its not just your LO.

    how often did she nurse?
    sometime taking baby to bed and getting lots of skin to skin contact helps.
    I know its hard with older kids.

    i feel like she is constantly eating so i dont think that is it didnt know if it could be something i ate that caused her to have a problem or what she is not cranky at all just seemed odd to only have the 1 dirty diaper in 24hrs??
    having her in bed with me makes me nervouse so the whole time she is in bed with me i am hardly sleeping i get lil naps and then i am drained the next day
