Too much? Julia W. 2 kids; Iowa 281 posts

My 2 year old (just turned 2 this month) urinates what appears to be way too much. It has been going on for 3-4 months. She will have a full diaper every half hour. I have a 1 year old as well and her overnight diapers are dryer than my 2 year old diapers at the 30 minute mark. It just seems like it's a crazy amount. When she was hospitalized in March they had to weigh her diapers and they even commented on how much "output" she had even when she was hardly drinking anything because she was almost always sleeping due to her illness/fever. We stayed with my cousin last month and she's a peds nurse and she commented on how much she was peeing multiple times...I just figured it was no big deal because it has been going on for awhile and nothing more has came of it. Is this something that needs to be brought up to the pedi or is it completely normal? She doesn't go to her 2 year checkup until next month because she has to get a shot that she was behind on and they have to wait a certain amount of time between them.

My 2 year old pee's a LOT... but he is constantly drinking. So it does seem odd that she is urinating so much but not drinking a lot. It wouldnt hurt to talk to her pedi about it.
