    Default decreased diaper output

    Sarai has had about 4 wets today. I am worried. I have had unending supply issues but am and have been on reglan and dont think its that. However it was 100plus today, shes not lethargic or different in anyway. We went out earlier to get groceries ect. and she got so hot poor baby all her hair was soaked. I got her home and nursed and nursed and nursed some more. should i be worried?

    *I* wouldn't worry at this point. Their output does change over time but since it was so hot, that might be part of it. (I despise SO CAL summers )
    This info on signs of dehydration comes from this page:

    Following are signs of dehydration:

    fewer than 2 wet diapers in a 24-hour period
    baby not behaving normally (more irritable, less active, sleeping more)
    lethargy
    listlessness
    weak cry
    no tears (in an infant older than 3 months)
    dry mouth
    skin that stays wrinkly-looking when pinched (pull up the skin on the front of the hand; it should pop easily back into place - not stay pinched or wrinkly-looking)
    eyes that look sunken
    cool, clammy extremities, especially the fingers and toes
    fast breathing, or a heart that is beating faster than usual
    fever

    And it will - that is to be expected as their bladder/bowel matures.

    But I can imagine how distressing that could be - especially for a mama such as yourself - having gone through so much to get to where you are now

    Well it was just a thought since it is so dang hot lately and maybe this would help her get some additional fliuds when nursing gets too uncomfortable (because of the heat)...
