Brief Answer:
Passing urine 6 hourly once is fine

Detailed Answer:
Hi.... any child who passes urine 6 hourly once is normal, that means in a period of 24 hours if a child passes urine 4 times then it should be fine.

Only thing is the quantity should be normal.

I feel your child is normal if the quantity of urine he is passing is appropriate.

Sometimes some medicines used for cough and cold can cause decreased urination. But this will settle in a few days.

Do not worry if the child is otherwise active and playful.
