Urine infections can be occur in anyone’s urine system. And the term urine infection defines that the entrance of a germ to any part of a urine system.

Then we can not cure this.
When considering babies, girls have higher ability to face for urine infections than the boys. The reason behind that is the urine system is situated near to the rectum in the body of girls. When they are washing the shits, the germs may enter to the urine system. Therefore the parents should be attentive when they are washing the shits of girl babies. The urethra of the boys is long one and from that advantage, they have less ability to be infected.
How can we identify if your baby has urine infection?
You can identify that whether your baby has urine infection or not by examination of some characteristics. When your baby has urine infection, the urine excretion times are more than the normal. Thus he or she cannot bare the neediness of urine excretion. This may be in the children who are in 7-8 years old. They may cry due to the pain of their underbelly and the babies who cannot talk, are crying more and more with this pain. When the infection is inside the bladder, children are not affected by fever.
But if it is in the kidneys, heavy fever may have. Thus if the color and the smell of urine is abnormal than other days, that may be a symptom of urine infection. Thus when they have infection, urine is unclear. Sometimes urine is removing with blood. According these symptoms, you can identify that whether your baby has urine infection or not. The correct examination is must because otherwise you cannot cure your child easily.
When considering infants, they are crying always in their first two months. When they want to excrete urine, they start to cry and if they are in a sleep, they are wake up.
