not passing urine
Created by Updated on Oct 03, 2017
Hello all, my baby is 4 months old and he is having cold and cough from last three days. I am giving medicines to him prescribed by the doctor (antibiotic and cough syrup ) but I have noticed he is passing urine in long gaps like 5-6 hours that too in very low amount. I am little worried. Should I consult the doctor or it happens?? pls advice. thanks in advance.

hi Himali Jain ! the frequency of urine is definitely low. try and feed him often. probably due to cold baby is not able to suckle. hence low output. make sure when u feed him his head is lil raised with yr hand's support so that he can breathe well. also check if his nose is clogged with mucus. then u need to clear it everytime u feed him.. take lil lulewarm water in a bowl, please check the temperature on ur hand . add a pinch of salt to it . with a dropper put just one drop in each nostril.. this would cause irritation and baby would sneeze, thereby opening blocked nose and making it easier for the child to breathe. please consult ur doc once and then follow this procedure. hope this helps!

Himali Jain .. when my baby had a bad cold I used saline spray for him.. if he is having blocked nose.. nasivion mini is extremely useful too.. if the really works.. get some CARVOL capsules.. break it and take a couple of drops of it and apply it on his dress and pillow. it helps relive stuffy nose.. keep his head raised too.. and feed him quite often.. if. theproblem persists.. kindly consult your doctor at the earliest
