Urine always has an odor to it and the odor can change based on how much fluids we drink and what kinds of foods we are eating. If your baby's urine has a foul odor my first suggestion would be to make sure your baby is getting plenty of fluids and ensure that your baby is not dehydrated. Certain foods are also known for causing urine to have a strong odor, such as garlic or asparagus for example. Keep an eye on it and watch your baby for any signs of infection such as fever, pain with urination or blood in the urine. Alert your doctor if you think your baby is showing any signs of infection.
