  • well she gets it the same as we get it. it's probably easier for a baby since they wear a diaper and you know what a mess it is when they poop and it gets into every nook and cranny. hope she gets better soon

  • My daughter was diagnosed with a kidney/ureter condition at 10 months old. The common term for it is just "kidney reflux" but I recommend asking your doctors about this while she's there in the hospital. It's quite common in baby girls, from what I remember, and a mom with 2 girls had a really great journal about a month ago or so.

  • Sorry to hear about your little girl, I hope she is feeling better soon. Giving her an infant probiotic will help her immune system bounce back to fight off UTIs in the future.
