Many mothers do not know that urine can tell the health situation of young children. Depending on the amount of water the baby drinks and the baby’s secreted sweat, the baby will urinate/pee more or less, but normally about 5-6 times. When you see your baby’s urine have color changes and unusual smells, you should take her/him to visit to the doctor for checkup.
1. The urine is pale/light yellow.
The sign shows that your baby’s body is perfectly healthy. When children eat sensibly, urinate normally, urine is light yellow and looks like the first green tea water.
2. The baby’s urine is transparently white.
Child’s health depends entirely on the care of adults. When mothers let children drink too much water, the urine is usually transparently white. Drinking plenty of water is good, but too much is not recommended. When young child’s body excesses water, it will cause pressure to make the baby’s kidneys operate overwhelmingly, affecting the function of filtering and excreting.
3. The baby’s urine is chrome yellow/dark yellow.
The baby’s urine is chrome yellow/dark yellow. Surely, mothers do not give babies to drink enough water everyday as needed. The darker the urine color is, the more the baby’s body is lacking. In addition, the dark yellow urine is caused by the drugs which babies or breastfeeding mothers are taking. Besides, if breastfeeding mothers eat too many yellow additives, it can make the baby’s urine dark yellow.
Moreover, the dark yellow urine is a sign of urinary tract infection. Coming with this disease, children may have a lasting fever. At this time, parents should give babies to drink a lot of water and take children to visit the doctor for timely treatment.

5. The baby’s urine is red.
