Last time I gave birth my son would not pee. I don't remember how long it finally took him, but it was well over the 24 hour mark they want to see at the hospital. He seriously was on the boob the entire time in the hospital, but would not pee. I had to use a nipple shield, so I was really worried if he was getting any. I pumped, and supplemented him with the little expressed colostrum I had, but that didn't work, he still wouldn't pee. They finally pushed me to give him formula. That made him pee. But I was wondering if there is any way around this next time. Does anyone have any info about babies not peeing within the first 24 hours? I'm wondering if there is anything I can do differently this time around.
