Yesterday Mia went almost 9 hours during the day without wetting her diaper. NINE. She did pee eventually; she was wet this morning when she got up at 7, and wet again at 10:3o. But she hasn’t been terribly active in that area today, and I’m starting to freak out a little. Because that is what I do.
At the 9 month appointment the ped told me she had a la.bi.al adhesion and told me to treat it with estrogen cream for 10 days. She also told me to keep an eye on things and to reapply the estrogen cream if I noticed a recurrence of the adhesion. Um, yeah. The words “teeny,” “tiny,” and “extremely delicate” have taken on a whole new meaning for me. I am terrified I am going to hurt her, and she does not care for the inspection process, so I don’t know if we have a recurrence or not.
I have, of course, “researched” this malady obsessively, and I’ve learned that problems with urination only occur in extreme cases. I don’t know if I have an extreme case on my hands, or if my kid is holding her pee, or if she is dehydrated and not producing pee, or what. Please advise. How many times a day do 11.5 month-olds pee? Anybody else’s daughter have this problem, and if so, was it “extreme?” Any other words of advice? Meanwhile I’ll be backing away from my Google search results now. It’s scary there.
