Signs that your Baby is Dehydrated

Dehydration means that your child doesn’t have as much fluid in his body as he needs. Babies and children are more prone to dehydration than adults.

It can happen if your baby takes in less fluid than she loses through vomiting, diarrhoea, fever, or sweating. Dehydration can be mild and easily corrected, moderate, or severe and life-threatening.

These are the possible signs that could indicate that your baby is dehydrated or is becoming dehydrated:
