A 4 month old with a UTI???
My sister called me and told me my neice, who is 4 months old, was admitted into the hospital with a UTI, Bronchitis and an Elevated WBC count. She is having a Renal Ultrasound today. My sister lives in low income housing living with 4 different families. Her 11 year old son the baby and her share a room. My sisters hygiene is awful, ie; wears no underwear even on AF. I am extremely concerned as to how and why a 4 month old baby girl can get a Urinary Tract Infection. It makes me concerned that the baby is not getting proper nutrition, maybe not getting cleaned well enough or god forbid getting touch improperly by someone in the house. Please help me understand how a 4 month old can get this or what your thoughts and prayers are. Thank you!

If the hospital thought it was anything other than a regular UTI from not changing the baby enough or not getting her clean enough they would have called CPS. They are required to report anything suspicious.
