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.

Brief Answer:
6 hours gap or more indicates dehydation

Detailed Answer:
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.
