    Default Pee Diapers

    So at 11 months old how many pee diapers should a LO have? I am starting to worry that my LO isn't having enough. He goes fairly long stretches without peeing at all. Like 4 hours sometimes. Is that okay. He is BF and gets water throughout the day, maybe 4 oz at the most.

    When he does go does he soak the diaper??? 4 hours is a long time but its probably normal as long as his urine is clear and not strong smelling he is probably just fine. My 12 m old rarely goes more than 30m-1 hour without peeing during the day.

    An infant/toddler should have six or more wet diapers during any 24 hr period. Some children will hold their urine for a while, then release it all at once, soaking their diaper. Cloth diaper users will see more wet diapers.

    Dark urine, urine that smells strong, and/or crystals passed in the urine are all signs of dehydration.

    He DEFINITELY will soak the diaper when he does go, but I was just nervous with it being such long periods. I am gonna make sure to count today. I would say it's not dark, or extra strong smelling.

    I counted that next day and he had about 6, so I guess I was worrying for nothing! Thanks for the info ladies!
