Thanks for your query

It can be normal or this increase in frequency of pee can be due to water and early sign of Diabetes Mellitus .

Is your baby drinking more water and eating more food?
Does he feel pain while passing urine?
Is there any change in urine colour?
Is there any pain abdomen or fever?

I recommend you to do get his urine routine examination done .

Kindly come up with these answers and if you have any oyher query, I will be happy to reply.

He is drinking same amount of water i think. I have not noticed him drinking extra water.

He is not complaining any pain and I have not seen any changes in the urine color or any fever.

I will still go and get the urine test done and will share the report with you.
