How much is she getting in oz.?  I know Neocate did awful things to my son's poop, but not his urine.

Could deft. be teething though if you don't notice it again for a while.

My son has been on neocate from 11 months and is is now 4 years old. James has not had any issues with his urine during this time. I have always made sure he has some water aswell otherwise it made him constipated. It might be worth giving a little water to your lo aswell (if you don't already).

On good days she will drink 640ml but 460ml is not uncommon.


I think 460ml is about 15.5oz and 640 is 21oz



She does drink water as well (a little bit) but Neocate doesn't make her constipated.


It could well be teething plus not drinking enough.

Well, she's over the teething episode and we've worked really hard (while I have my dh home) to have got her drinking a lot more. I haven't noticed the ammonia smell. So it was probably one or the other or both causing the smell. Thanks for your help ladies!

Glad to hear it, but if I had to guess it was because she was not drinking enough.  Glad she is better!
