He pee is awful!!!

Ok, so Jeremy (22 mos) has some rancid urine. Idk what causes it, but it's very very strong, amonia smelling stuff. He drinks water or crystal light during the day with milk at meals (he can't have fruit juice b/c it give him diarreah really badly) and he drinks a ton!...so I'm wondering what could be causing this, and more importantly what can I do to stop it. I have to rinse out the diapers like 3 times before they don't smell like the ammonia in his urine anymore it's so bad.

It isn't him! It's the diapers. No urine smells like ammonia no matter how much/little you drink. Diapers will smell like ammonia if there is bacteria lingering in them from not getting cleaned enough. Search on "diaper chatter" for some threads on "ammonia". It is a common problem. Basically your diapers aren't getting clean enough. You can try adding some bleach to your wash....HTH.

Re: He pee is awful!!!

I just striped my diapers because they just started smelling like this. I think it was because, for some reason, dd's been peeing a lot more than usual and soaking each diaper completely for the past few days.

Also, kids really should't get aspartame - that's what's in Crystal Light.

Re: He pee is awful!!!

You could try using bac-out on your dipes, that is what finally helped mine.

AFA flavoring his water, have you tried highly diluting the juice? Or alternatively, skipping flavoring entirely, since he drinks water anyhow?

rarely will he drink water by itself...and yes, I have tried diluting the juice and I guess he's so so sensitive b/c I can tell a difference in his poo when I do that too.

Is it all juice or is he sensitive to certain fruits, like citrus? I like to use cranberry b/c you can use just a splash and it gives the water a nice flavor. Other than that I can't help b/c DD loves her water.
