bladder infection??

Two nights in a row my nine year old has wet her bed. Yesterday after she went to the bathroom I smelled the most foul odor. She says nothing hurts and her stomach feels okay but does this sound like a uti?

I would give her a lot I'd give her a lot of water today she may be dehydrated.

Also cranberry juice if its just starting maybe you can treat it before it starts to hurt.

Yep UTI. PLEASE take her to the Dr TODAY. I didn't realize that my youngest had a UTI and she ended up with a kidney infection, sepsis (blood infection) and permanent kidney damage which we are still struggling to deal with. PLEASE take her in right away. I get UTI's all the time and thought some cranberry and wipe from front to back and it's all good ... nope they can actually be VERY serious. DD was admitted with a 107 fever one night and had been totally FINE that morning!

I took her in this morning. The test was negative. I couldn't believe it. I let her go to school and everything. Then I get a call this afternoon. Apparently the lab didn't check for white blood cells. Sure enough she had an infection. I knew it! She is on meds now
