Urine Smell in infant boy?

Ok, so my 2 month old's wet diapers have been having a slight smell to them. It's not strong, and it's really not even that foul- but it's just enough to where I can tell he has a wet diaper. The doc doesn't seem too concerned as he doesn't have a fever and hasn't been acting different, also there is no color to his urine that I've observed. I am worried because he has had a UTI in the past. Is it normal for baby's urine to have a slight smell to it? He has also been peeing alot, and he is exclusively breastfed.  Any ideas?

i feel the need to also mention that my husband doesn't usually smell it at all.  Maybe I'm just crazy :/

Ok, sometimes I can smell my daughters. My nose got super sensitive during pregnancy, it never went away and I can smell everything.

Not crazy, just a normal mom worrying like we all do! =)

Just watch him to see if he does end up with a fever or any other UTI symptoms. Your sense of smell might just be better than others, that also doesn't make you crazy. ; )
