UTI In Infants

Urinary Tract Infection or UTI in kids is not that straightforward compare to adults. If adults had UTI or the older children, usually they got it outside. In infants, UTI means the urine structures inside the body may have problems so it is better if you send the baby to the doctor right away. UTI in infants should have further investigation especially when you see a blood on the baby’s diaper. Water intake can help the discoloration but it won’t prevent an infection from occurring. If the baby has been sent to the doctor already and still you see blood on her or his underwear, you should send the baby again and have repeat testing so to make sure for the baby’s health and her or his safety.
