My 7 month 3wk old LO does not seem to wet "enough" diapers each day. He wears a size larger diaper to bed and it's completely full in the mornings. During the day he might have 3-4 wet diapers, and they're not "sopping wet" like I've read. I just tried the 4-6 T of water in a clean diaper and I'm not sure they're that wet. HOWEVER, they are always pale and mild-smelling. Aside from his first couple of days of life, I've never seen concentrated urine in his diaper.
I posted a while back about his low weight gain (only 3oz from 4 months to 6 months) so I've been paying extra close attention to things like this. He went from 14lbs 7oz to 15lbs 13oz in 5.5 weeks, so I think things are going well now as far as gaining.
Are his lack of wets a cause for concern? He also gets constipated fairly often. For this reason I have tried getting him to drink a few sips of water with his solids, and when he actually drinks the water, he does not get constipated. Most of the time he refuses the water, period.
