Many parents wonder what's normal and what's not when it comes to their baby. But sometimes the parents get concerned when their babies cry while urinating. Most often this is related to pain and with some underlying condition.
- Reasons of Dizziness
- Urinary Tract Infection
- When to See a Doctor?
Urinating should never be a painful experience. Inform your paediatrician if you see any indicators of concern when the child is urinating. This could indicate an infection or other issue with the urinary tract.
Let's take a look at some of the causes why a baby cries while urinating.
Possible Reasons for Painful Urination
Crying while urinating could be due to various reasons. And there's a distinction to be made between crying for several minutes and crying for a few seconds.
Discomfort or Pain
Pain while urinating is the most common symptom and it can be caused due to various reasons, including:
- Infection in the urinary tract
- Irritation or injury of the genital area
It should be noted that some Pediatricians suggest, crying before urinating is quite normal and common for babies. This can be caused due to urinary discomfort when the bladder is filled and leads to pressure and passage of the urine.
But if your baby is crying continuously while urinating then there can be serious problems. Before getting to any conclusion talk to the pediatrician.
