My daughter is almost 11 months old and has been sleeping through the night since about 4 months old. Currently, her diaper output during the night is causing me concern though.
With the heat wave that been going on, she sweats a lot. In the morning, not only is her diaper pretty light, it is also dark yellow/brownish and smelly. However, her diaper is pretty heavy after 3-4 hours after she wakes up and continues to be clear throughout the day. I have seen this pattern repeat for days now. She poops about once a day and they look normal to me.
Is there something I can do to prevent her nighttime dehydration? I nurse her at about 9 before she sleeps. Then I nurse at about 10.30 or so even though she doesn't wake up for it. In fact, for the past few days, I think she is barely interested in drinking any during the last feed. She wakes up at about 6.30-7 in the morning.
She seems to have no interest in drinking water/juice during the day. I offer her a sippy cup and she barely drinks an ounce or two throughout the day.
Thanks for any help/advice. This website has been really great in answering a lot of my concerns.
