Re: a question about baby urine

I would talk to your baby's doctor as sweet urine can be a sign of diabetes. There are usually other signs/symptoms also, but better safe than sorry.

Re: a question about baby urine

Actually, Do a search on Maple Sugar Urine Disease. It could be the diapers and how they react to the urine or something bigger. I would make sure to talk to a Dr about it. I would not be looking at the diabetes factor right now as it is very rare in a baby this young and also... Diabetic urine tastes sweet it doesnt smell sweet..Ewww Sorry

Re: a question about baby urine

Mommyof4 is a search about MSUD. The symptoms I know of are,

* Urine which smells like maple syrup
* Feeding difficulties
* Lethargy
* Vomiting

-and the more severe........

* Seizures
* Coma
* Avoiding food

I would definantly talk to the Dr. about this because it's treatable with early detection. Good luck Let me know what the dr. says!!
