Okay internets. I've made a pact with myself not to call the doctor on a beautiful sunny Saturday afternoon. Instead, I'm going to pick your brain over my newest obsession: my son's lack of pee.
It started a few weeks ago where I noticed he was peeing less. Basically, we were putting expensive diapers on him and he wasn't filling them up. So, I bought the cheapies and saved the expensive ones for night time.
Except for the last two nights, he's woken up dry. That's right, completely DRY.
Now, he's been acting and feeling fine, save a small cold he caught from his sister. And his bottom molars are cutting through as we speak (youch!).
But he's drinking. And eating (well, if it's fruit, bread, sometimes chicken nuggets, sometimes tofu, rice, and/or an egg on every fourth day unless it rains and then no egg -- at least that's the other pattern I can figure out thus far).
And he's pooping. Once or twice a day. And he's clearly not dehydrated.
But the pee. Well, let's just say that I put him down at 8pm last night and he didn't pee until 1pm today! EEK. It was a lot of pee. Not particularly stinky. Not particularly yellow or scary. But it was a lot. Well, once on the floor after I took off his dry diaper and twice in two diapers (I put new ones on him each time to keep track).
I'm hardpressed to believe that he's ready for potty training (he's a genius!), but he has been making some big developmental strides -- two new words last night! And he's been very active and annoying, which is always a good sign for a healthy 18 month old.
No fevers, no pain (except mine, particularly my head after long days chasing after him).
I have noticed that he's not peeing when we're out or when he's sleeping -- when he stands up or is running around at home, then he'll pee. So yesterday, he had a dry diaper when he woke up, but he peed once he came downstairs. Today, we were out all morning and then he went from the car right to a nap, so he didn't pee until he woke up from the nap.
Does that make sense? (I know people hate when people ask that question, but it seems to be a good question to ask).
So, should I be worried? Or does anyone else have any experience with a toddler like this? I mean, because it's always nice to have something to obsess over.
