I know with babies you count how many wet diapers they have in a day to see if they are dehydrated. How often should they go as toddlers? She's 2 and in pull ups, just about trained.

But if you think she is getting there give her as much pedialyte as she will drink.

Little to no pee in 8 hours is a sign of dehydration in toddlers. Other signs of dehydration can also include dry chapped lips/skin, headache, dark urine, constipation, and no tears during crying.

Thanks, yeah she's getting there and I'm trying my best to get her to drink more. She has a really bed cold so she hasn't wanted to eat or drink much. I give her cups that she thinks are fun and cups with straws to try to get her excited to drink.

Pedialyte makes popsciles. Of course you would have to wait on them to freeze after getting them but maybe yu could get her to eat reg popsciles until then.

Yeah very little pee 6 hours ago. Was the last time and one good one after she woke up. Pull up was dry when she woke up.

Personally if it was me and she hadn't peed but just a little 6 hours ago I'd go ahead and take her to the er or if there is a dr open where u are. Because that's long enough for her to be getting there, she may need an iv. That can get very serious very fast. Better safe than sorry:) I hope she feels better

So what's going on with her? Does she have diarrhea or a UTI?
