    Default 6 hrs and still dry diaper

    LO has been fussy the past two weeks, I just thought she might be getting her molars. She hasnet nursed since about 4pm (friday) I gave her motrin. She woke up at midnight and I went to nurse and she flipped. Her diaper is dry after 6 hrs. When should I worry?

    I wouldn't worry until morning, at least. If she wakes up dry then I'd wonder what was up ... has she had any food or fluids?

    She ate last around 4, She had some applesauce. Which was pretty normal. All she wants to do is be held and suck her thumb I just tried some of her juice in her sippy... and she took it (90% water and 10% juice) Maybe I need to pump, I need to pump any way I am huge! She screams and arches her back when I show her my boob I've never given her my milk is a cup.... I will have to figure how to do that. Wont my milk separate after a while. Do you give it cold or warm?

    If she still gets really upset with nursing for the whole weekend, call the pedi on Monday or make an appt. The first time I dealt with a nursing strike it was because of an ear infection and he did the same thing- just really upset when I tried to nurse.

    Make sure to get the fluids in there w/ however she will take it. You can give her the BM in a sippy cup imo.

    I, too, give BM in a sippy cup. If I just pump I would give fresh - if it has been in the fridge I just give it cold. DD really doesn't care.

    For some reason I can't do that so well. I get maybe a tsp full
    I did pump, I have a pretty good pump medela (sp) She took about 1-2 oz from a sippy cup and she ate a good amount pancakes with us.

    Oh and she woke with a pretty dry diaper. She normally has to be changed 2-3 times a night. She maybe wet it once last night.

    This is probably her teething, I was just scared with the amout of wet diapers, but shes taking fluids fine now. Thank you!

    yeah by 1 my dd was just about always dry during the day
    my ds was turning 3 so I trained them both at the same time.
    IT took her till she was about 2 to poop on the potty all the time...
    As long as her pee is almost clear and not realy smelly not to much to worry about.
