Does anyone know how long is too long for a 21 month old to go without peeing? My DD hasn't gone in over 6.5 hours now (she has been nursing and had some water), she is sick - we have been to the doctor already for a lung infection.

She is sleeping now so hopefully she will pee when she wakes up. If not we will call the doctor.

Well, my daughter has gone over 13 hours, so I wouldn't be worried about that, especially if she's sick in other ways and might not be taking in as much fluid. Waking hours, she's gone 6 or 7 on a regular basis when she really doesn't want to potty.

I got a lot of responses when I asked about this earlier, and apparently it's normal.

Hope she gets better soon!

I just read 6-8 hours could indicate dehydration... but 5 minutes after I posted she did a monster pee. :

At 8hrs w/o peeing, my DD was dehydrated, and we took her in for an iv. Maybe it depends on the kid, but DD had moderate dehydration at that point.

DD has gone overnight plus 4-5 more hours without peeing on several occasions. Especially if they're accustomed to 'holding it' --EC'd babes and potty-trained kiddos-- I don't think that ALONE is a sign to worry about. If they've been sick at the same time then I'd certainly watch out for other signs of dehydration, in other words I'd keep a wary eye on it but not worry.

If she was basically healthy though and had had some water and nursing, I wouldn't worry about it at all.
