Babies cry as a method of communicating with people around them. The meaning of a baby's cry has different meanings. Usually, babies cry because they experience discomfort, such as thirst, hunger, heat or cold, and want to be pampered. However, babies crying when urinating should be watched out for because it can be a sign of a serious illness, one of which is a UTI or Urinary Tract Infection. This is normal for babies under one year of age. 

The cause of urinary tract infections is when bacteria from baby feces are still attached to the sensitive area, where the bacteria can enter the genitals and infect the bladder. It could be because the way to clean the baby's feces is not appropriate, so the baby has abnormalities in the urinary tract, has a family history of UTIs, the diaper is left dirty for too long, the baby is constipated, or the baby has not been circumcised. Come on, find out about the symptoms and how to deal with babies who often cry and experience UTIs in the following article.

Some of the Symptoms of UTIs Experienced by Babies
Some of the symptoms that may occur, namely:

  • Baby crying when urinating Urinating
  • little by little
  • Urine has a foul odor, cloudy color, or blood
  • Fussiness
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Decreased appetite
  • Looks lethargic
  • Fever
  • Weight is difficult rises
  • Visible chills when urinating
  • Pain in the lower abdomen, especially the bladder
  • Often drowsy.

Baby girls are more at risk of developing UTIs than baby boys. Of course this has a reason, because baby girls consist of a urethra that is shorter in size than the urinary tract of baby boys, which can make it easier for bacteria to enter the bladder. 

Urinary tract infections are also often suffered by male babies, to be precise, those who have not been circumcised. This is because the scalp of the penis that has not been removed or circumcised is a gathering place for bacteria. These bacteria can enter the urinary tract.

Research also says that UTIs are more likely to strike baby boys with phimosis. Phimosis is when the foreskin is tight and cannot return to the head of the penis. Of course, phimosis can only be overcome when a baby boy cuts the scalp of the penis. The head of this baby boy's genitals should not be pulled back, because it can injure the surrounding area. In addition, the head of the male genitalia will also block the passage of urine because it is tightly closed to the head of the penis.

How to Overcome a Crying Baby When Urinating
