All about urine infants: what is the normal color and smell in the urine of a newborn
The birth of a child in most families is a joyful and long-awaited event. Every mom does not want her beloved to be sick and feel unwell. Daily hygienic care, proper nutrition, provision of the necessary thermal regime – all this helps to grow a healthy and strong child. But, unfortunately, sometimes the baby starts to fall ill, and parents do not always notice the inflammatory process. A baby’s baby can respond immediately to many questions related to the child’s health and well-being. Therefore, during the examination, which takes place 3 months after the birth of the baby, a pediatrician is given a urine test.
What should I look for in the analysis of children’s urine?
Currently, more and more commercial medical institutions, where there are their laboratories. Many parents turn to them to make an analysis of the urine of an infant. After that, they receive a sheet listing the results. Sometimes there are standards against the data obtained, sometimes not. It is worth noting that the norms for an adult are usually indicated, so at first it may seem that the tests are bad. Parents should understand the rules for infants, so as not to panic beforehand.
There is a simple household way of testing the urine to identify which substances caused it to become turbid. The urine should be collected in a clean jar, put it in a pot filled with water, then warm it up a little. Now you can evaluate the result:
- The amount and nature of the muti has not changed - an inflammatory process in the body is possible.
- Urine has become more transparent - a large content of oxalate salts.
- The amount of turbidity has increased - the presence of phosphate salts in urine.
If you get the first result, you must pass the urine test in and contact the doctor. The last two - do not cause concern. If the color and transparency of urine is assessed visually, another indicator is through the sense of smell.
The smell of baby urine can also help determine the inflammatory process at the initial stage. Children's urine should be observed daily, because the infant can not express by words because of age, that something is bothering him.
Normal smell of urine in an infant; unsharp, varies according to the food intake. At children on artificial feeding it has the big concentration.
If the child has the urine acquired the smell of acetone, feces, then this may be a sign of any infection, you should immediately contact the pediatrician.
Daily observation of the urine of a small child allows time to notice the appearance of symptoms of various infections and diseases. This is very important, since a very narrow list of medicines is provided for infants. Treatment in the early stages will avoid the use of strong antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs.
If the infant has poor urine; should consult a doctor for prescription after diagnosis.
