It occured to me that she wasn't getting in the ussual amount of water I'd been relxed on her intake of juice and milk and she was drinking way more of those and way less plain water..
I focused on increasing her water intake and the ammonia issue resolved itself with out any change to diaper laundry.
That's really interesting. However I don't think it had anything to do with our issue, as DS drinks only water (other than BFing of course), and plenty of it. Good to know that can be a cause, though!
