Trips to the Bathroom


A common concern among parents is the feeling that a child is urinating too frequently. Could there be an infection? Does the child have diabetes? Does the child have a nervous problem? Should we ignore it?

Not only does frequent urination concern parents, but for the child in school, a teacher might wonder if the child really needs to use the bathroom that often.

To resolve these concerns, one needs to know the normal frequency of urination in children. The table shown below may prove helpful in relieving some apprehension

If the child is exceeding these norms (and the best way to be certain is to record the number of trips), parents should seek the advice of their pediatrician. Although many normal children go through a period lasting several weeks making constant trips to the bathroom for two drops of urine, it is still nice to be reassured.

Since urinary tract infections are not common in early childhood, it may be worth having a pediatrician order a urinalysis and culture. Parents may want to ask their child if there is any pain or "funny feeling" associated with these frequent bathroom trips.
