my baby pees alot also he drinks alot of juice so i been putting it down to that but i have recently reduced the amount he drinks cos im fed up with all the nappy chainges.

every nappy i change if full to the brim and i am chaingeing him every hour to 2 hours.

i dont know why he pees so much but i know its gonna be very hard to potty train him if it continues.

Actually the more he pees the better. It means he is well hydrated. NEVER reduce the amount your child drinks without pediatrician recommendation. It can lead to dehydration. Also, it is actually easier to potty train if they pee more, especially if it is regular.

If you have any diabeties in your family history I'd go have him checked for it. Excessive urination is a symptom. The test just takes a finger prick, if nothing is wrong it will be over and you'll know he's okay. If not the Dr will have him drink some juice like stuff and draw some more blood. The worst part is the drink (it tastes horrible).

I don't know how old your son is, but my daughtet did this too until she came off the bottle (which during the day was 10 months and at 11.5 months she seems to be off night bottles!). I leave a cup of water out for her all day and milk when she wakes up (am and after naps), with breakfast, lunch and . We have given her juice once and she refused to take it so I am glad as she eats so much fruits and water is so much better for them! If he drinks it I would say go with it. If you get too concerned or its completely clear or dark browny take him in, otherwise just be glad he isn't dehydrated!

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

My daughter is nearly 3 years, and recently she has been wetting herself and not telling no one. Normally she asks to go toilet. I've noticed that she goes toilet loads of times within a day, which worries me. The nursery have informed that it was unlike her to do. This sudden change has scared me. I'm going to the doctors to rule out diabetes just in case

limit what he drinks. A cup in the morning, a cup at lunch a cup in between and a cup for dinner.
