Only needing to pee once a day since birth


My son was born 2 weeks ago and I only need to pee once a day or even that it doesn't hurt to go so I know it's not an infection I'm breastfeeding so constantly having fluids just wondering if this is normal or could something be wrong

Sorry, not sure but have you mentioned this to your MW/HV? Is this unusual for you? I know that I have to go about 10 times a day, but I always have done. Have you had to go more frequently before LO came along? At only 2 weeks PP your body is still messed up really. I had pelvic floor problems after Frankie was born and went to see a physio at 6 weeks PP and she said I was still in the very early days of recovery and that she wouldn't expect things to start returning to normal until about 3 months PP.

I would still mention it to MW/HV though, just to be safe.

You may have suffered bladder trauma during the birth, I would keep hydrated and keeping going to the toilet every 2 hours, if you are unable to pass urine then I would see your gp for a referral.

I only go that much too but that was normal for me before pregnancy. The fact that it strikes you as odd means it's worth mentioning to your midwife/health visitor I think.

Think you need to see your GP, you may have suffered bladder trauma and need to catheterise yourself for a while. My LO is almost 8 months and I have to do it on occasion if I haven't pee'd for more than 4 hours as you then become at increased risk for UTI's.

I never used to go to the loo while at work (8:30am to 6pm) but since being at home I go about 5 times during the day!
As previous posters have said if it is unusual for you then probably best to get it checked out.

I agree that you should have that checked out. I was drinking a lot of fluids due to breastfeeding and had to pee often. Nothing like the middle of the night feeds and having to hold it until he was done to work on my kegels.
