Is it normal for a 6 months old to urinate nearly 20 times a day?
Q: My 6 months old daughter is urinating quite frequently. At night, she urinates around 6 times and in all around 17 to 25 times per day. What should I do for this? Is there anything abnormal? I am little bit scared whether she has diabeties. Please advise.
A:It is certainly not normal for a 6-month old girl to urinate 17-25 times a day. It is important to consult a pediatrician and at least test the urine immediately for diabetes mellitus, diabetes insipidus or urinary tract infection. Treatment and further advice will depend on the test results.
