Thanks for posting your query to XXXXXXX

Must say your baby is real cutie pie!

There is no set numbers of times baby passes urine. Some pass 10-15 times and some 6-8 times. In newborn period, they pass more frequently but quantity is less. As they mature, frequency reduces but quantity increases because of maturity of kidneys. If child passes no urine then it can be due to dehydration and of concern.

So if your baby is passing 8 times in 24 hrs then this is OK.

How about the cough?
Does she have fever?
Does she have running nose?

Do get back with the replies and fresh queries.
Take Care.
