  • Have her drink lots of cranberry juice and water today. Call ped to ask what they would like you to do. Could be something like UTI or she just hasn't been drinking enough fluids.

  • Maybe just to be safe take her to see her Dr... It could be the start of a bladder infection, or she just may need to drink more clear fluids during the day..

  • everyone has smellier and darker pea in the morning. everyone (unless you drink water through the night) wakes up dehydrated. the first thing every one should do first thing in the morning is drink a glass of water. she is probably going 10-12 hours with no water. the fact that it normalizes after she is up and about is great! now, if this is something new for her, then you may want to keep an eye on it.

  • She just needs to drink more water and also pee during the night.
