Last night I noticed his urine was really yellow (not neon!!) and I wonder if it is ok??  I think it's usually clear. I pee him over the toilet usually but caught a pee in his bblp and notices this. It's still yellow today. 


Hes ebf and he wears cloth diapers. He's uncirc and I'm all nervous bc I googled and improper wiping and baths can cause bladder infection!!! He doesn't have any other signs at all 


Hes also teething. He has been super fussy for 2 days in a row- besides me cheating with candy and having champagne over nye nothing has changed.

Have you recently started taking B Complex vitamins?  That makes my pee neon, and my daughter's when I was nursing her.

also if you normally catch it in the toilet and then get one in the bblp, it won't be diluted and you may simply notice the yellow color more? I notice that my DD (2m) pee seems to vary in color during the day and I do wonder if my vitamin and what I eat affects it, also how long since she last peed, etc. VERY dark pee could be a sign of dehydration or other problems but I'd imagine a baby that was sick or dehydrated wouldn't be behaving normally either.
