Infant, difficulty passing urine, blood drops from vagina. Advise? - Online Doctor Chats
Is this XXXXXXX?
Dr., my 6 days baby girl is not passing urine properly
Yes, XXXXXXX please proceed with your query
she does the same only once in a day on an average
She may not be consuming more milk
Is the baby fine otherwise?
yes...and today there was some drops of bleeding from her vagina
Are you feeding the baby regularly?
How often does she suck and take milk?
In the day, on an average, after every 2 hours, she feeds for 30 minutes
That is good
and in night, she sleeps and feeds after every 4 hours
She may be passing urine normally, if you notice closely
Because,as you say she is otherwise normal
but today, she is sucking only for 15 minutes after every 2 hours
She is active right?
active means ?
she is loosing her weight
Does she cry?
Is she awake in the night?
Loosing weight is normal in first 10 days of life
Is she sucking effectively on your breasts?
yes she cries well, her weight was 3.1 kg on her birth & yesterday it was 2.61 kg
It is so normal XXXXXXX
Babies will loose weight in first 10 days
I do not see there is a major reason for you to worry now
well i am feeding my baby on an average of 2 hour.... sometime she takes feed for only 15 min & then sleep down
However, just put this across to her pediatrician
XXXXXXX I will tell you few simple suggestions
Feed the baby on demand
That is, you should feed the baby as and when it is crying
ok but how would i know that she had enough feed. she sometime stops taking milk just after 15 min
Do not think that baby is not fed well
You should make sure that you feed the baby fully
You can feel your breasts getting empty at the end of the feed
You will learn it over time
Make sure you start and end the feed in one breast at a time
yes, the breast seems to be very soft and light
yes, I do the same
I understand XXXXXXX
It will take sometime for you to produce adequate amount of milk too
You will produce highest amount of milk at 7 th month
You should just continue to feed the baby, breast milk will be established soon
Are you following me XXXXXXX?
Are you there XXXXXXX?
just assure me that not passing urine and bleeding is the normal case
Yes, it is normal
She will be fine soon
The only thing you need to do is. continue breastfeeding
Was she born after 37 weeks ?
she was born in 41st week
That is fine
there is no chance of any other problem, like problem in kidneys etc....right ?
It is still normal
As far as I see it, I do not think there is any problem with her kidneys
Do not worry
Thank you too
is there anything else I may help you with?
Take care XXXXXXX and take care of the baby too
Bye for now
