I googled it, and I got a lot of inappropriate sites. Have call into doctor, just waiting...
So, my 4.5 year old daughter has had a stomach bug. Yesterday, we ended up having to take her to urgent care, and she had to have an IV with fluids to get rehydrated and a catheter since she wouldn't pee, and they needed to do a urine test.
When they drew the pee, she had LOTS of it. She just refused to pee. And it was a good color, and when they tested it, there was no infection.
So, today, she tried to pee in the morning, and it really hurt her, so she stopped. I tried putting her in a warm bath and told her to pee in there, but she wouldn't. A while later, I sat her on the potty again, and she started to pee, and the same deal happened. Tried warm bath again, and she won't go.
My daughter is not at all fond of going to the bathroom as it is, but now she has this additional trauma. I told her that I knew it hurt, but that she needed to pee in order for it to get better. It's just not happening.
I also tried running water while she's sitting on the potty. I've thought about giving her a bunch of liquids, but up until yesterday at least, if she drank anything but water, she would puke, so I'm a bit afraid to offer something that she might be tempted by, like juice. However, she is on Zofran (anti-nausea medication).
Does anyone have any tricks?
