My son doesnt seem to be urinating

I might be over reacting a bit however, My son is almost 5 months old, and this morning I have noticed that his diaper that is usually soaked after a full night of sleep was bone dry. I didnt change him, figuring I would give him some time but now almost three hours later it is still bone dry. he had his night time bottle 8oz at around 8pm and another bottle this morning at 8 am. Usually he is soaked and I have to change him right away after he wakes up. Typically by this time in the morning I would have changed him twice.

How long should I wait before I should be concerned??

  • Put him in a warm bath to see if that stimulates him, along with putting a call in.

  • I would call too. While it may be nothing (sometimes I randomly wake up and go awhile before I have to tinkle even though normally I do right away) it could be something you'd want checked out. Better to find out sooner rather than later.
