    Default How much urine required for UTI test 2.5 year old?

    I have to get a clean catch for a 2.5 year old who isn't toilet trained. She freaks out every time I try and has been holding it in. She let a little bit leak and I got like 1 drop in the cup. Anyone know how much they require to actually test?? Could this possibly do the job?

    Can you pop into a pathology place and get the little catch bags. They aren't ideal but might be better than trying to chase her around.
    I sympathize!

    We had a potty with a removable bowl, which I would sterilise then have her sit on the potty and watch TV or read a book. The bags are another option but not so reliable at that age.

    You could also pop another container into her potty to collect it, or if she uses the 'proper toilet just put a clean ice-cream container into the bottom and collect it that way.

    You generally need enough to cover the bottom of the collection jar.

    Thanks! This is what we managed. There is probably 2mm of urine across the bottom of the jar. it's the best I could do! Hopefully enough! I'm exhausted so they better have enough now...
