  • After my baby had a UTI at 4 months old we had to take her in for a dye test to check for this condition. Urinary tract infection and potential Kidney damage if infection goes undiagnosed for awhile are potential risks for this condition. How old is your daughter?

  • my daughter was diagnosed with this after getting a UTI that went undiagnosed for a week. i kept taking her to the doctors office and finally she was admitted into the hospital. once we knew what she had we kept an eye on her and she has now outgrown it. she was 16 months when diagnosed and outgrew by the time she was 3 1/2. the only problem we have now is making her go to the bathroom since she wants to hold it in.
