    Yep get a urine test. DD had two UTIs last year (age 2) and I only knew something was up because of the weird smell. Apparently when they're less than 2-3 years old the don't complain of pain so don't wait for that to be a sign.

    I believe it's standard to then get a kidney ultrasound after testing positive for a UTI, so if your DD has an infection your doctor should organise that. It's just to make sure her kidneys and bladder are all good.

    Oh and I suspect my DD's UTI's were due to wiping incorrect after toilet at daycare, and not drinking enough water and not urinating regularly enough. When I told a friend that DD had a UTI she looked at me like I was saying she had an STI. UTI's aren't STI's!

    UTI's can very quickly turn into a kidney infection, better to get her checked.

    I have had UTI'S a few time. All were because of not enough water. My nanna gets them too all the time she wears a catheter so not sure.
    Adding all get treated with antibiotics. I had a hospital stay once as an adult. The nan always gets put in hospital (she is 94).

    Ok then yes she is down on wet nappies. Probably has 3-4 or 5 if she has had heaps to drink (around growth spurt time). Will take her to the doctors tomorrow.
