6mth old not wetting very much....concern? Please repost.
I don't know if it's cause he's teething, cause he's stressed out we're moving, or what, but today, and I believe some of yesterday, he wet only 4 diapers, and not soaking wet either. More along the lines of wet once or twice in them before I changed him, not his typical way of doing things.
He is eating, or seems to be, eating enough during the day and at night.
He is teething, don't see bumps yet but we all know those could take months to come in!
Also his poop has taken on a strange odor. Almost but not quite like vinegar, a very acidic smell to be more precise. Is this a cause for concern?
He'll have to have his 6 month check up about 2 weeks late this go round as we'll be moving about an hour away and I want to wait til then to get him set up with a pediatrician. We are buying a house, have been living in corporate housing for the past month.
If these are causes for concern I'll make him an appointment right away, but wanted to check here first.
We are still exclusively breastfeeding, although we did try a tiny amount of rice cereal last week, did ok with it. And we tried bananas about 3 days ago. No reactions seemed to happen with either one, but it's either the bananas or him reacting to my Papa Johns peppercenis that is causing the vinergary poopy smell. Although the peppers should be out of my system as of yesterday, not sure how long it would take for them to get out of his.
Any thoughts on any of this???
