My son who is 3 has been out of diapers now for about 3 weeks. He pees into a small potty we have for him and I notice that his urine is really yellow. In fact tonight he pointed it out to me himself calling it "my orange pee".

I have been cutting back on juices and milk and giving him more water, but it hasn't changed. Could it be the vitamins? Any thoughts?

Yes, actually vitamin C turns the urine yellow. It is not dangerous though.

I'm pretty sure it's the B Vits that turn it that lovely color (flourescent!), but I agree that it's harmless!
