Hi welcome to Healthcare Magic

you must continue to feed the child with fluids, until she urinates... common cough and cold wont affect the urine out put.. If the child doesn't respond to fluids and didn't pass urine after 24 hrs.. then , consult the pediatrician for further examination and treatment...
