Hi, My Daughter Is 14 Months Old. She Has Cold
Proper hydration needs to be ensured at the earliest
Thanks for using 'Ask A Doctor' service.
I would not take this lightly as it could indicate dehydration. You need to give your child plenty of ORS (Oral rehydration solution) and plenty of fluids to drink.
Continue to do so till the passage of urine normalizes.
Feel free to write back.
6 hours gap or more indicates dehydation
For an infant it is ok to pass urine 8times or more in 24 hours although the gap between two episodes is variable. Not passing urine for more than 6 hours is a clear indication of dehydration.
