hi padmini,
your baby is having urinary infection & needs to be treated completely. get a renal ultrasound done to look if there is some issue with the kidneys. if there is, baby will need admission with i/v antibiotics for may be 10 days atleast. else oral medicines will be adequate till urine clears of. but its very very important to make sure your baby drinks plenty of water.
