My 4 month old and I have been kind of part time/informally EC for the past month. She usually pees upon waking and then I'm able to catch a few additional pees during waking hours. Over the last two weeks she's developed kind of a high pitched shout that to me signals that she needs to pee. To my ear, it is not quite a cry. Tonight she woke up from her usual deep beginning-of-the-night sleep with an urgent high-pitched cry. Her diaper was dry so I tried her on the potty and sure enough she went. She nursed back to sleep easily enough but it made me wonder. As general as my description was, does a cry like that sound like a typical EC cue or could it be a sign that urinating is uncomfortable for my baby, as though she should be checked for a UTI?
