first of all make sure the child is getting enough fluid .

Urine infection may b one reason for ur babys problem but if he strains to pass urine u need to check for any stricture in his urethra/ posterior urethral valves which r common in male infants.kindly consult a pediatrician/pediatric surgeon.till then get a urine routine n culture done n feed him adequately to prevent dehydration.
