No results have been found for 'dehydration'. Try another keyword?
Dehydration occurs if babies lose too much fluid (through diarrhoea, vomiting, overheating or fever) or don’t take in enough fluid (if they are unable to feed). Take your baby to the doctor if he or she is not wee-ing or has dark yellow urine, if the baby is pale and lethargic with sunken eyes and a dry mouth or has a sunken soft spot (fontanelle). A baby who becomes mildly dehydrated may begin to suffer from constipation.
