A mother dumped a soaking wet 18 month-old girl whose face and hands were covered with scars in the middle of a street, police say. I just saw her over there drinking a bottle, just looking around all sad. She was taken to hospital for an examination, CBS Philly reported, and is not believed to have sustained any serious injuries. Police have not yet said how the girl, who lives around a mile away from where she was abandoned, sustained the abrasions on her face.

Wet Diapers and Newborn Urine Output
An average 9-month-old baby produces at least four to five saturated diapers in a hour period, and sometimes more for outliers. A 9-month-old consuming both liquids and solids should have pale, odorless, straw-colored urine, unless she produces more than five soaking-wet diapers daily, in which case you can expect an even lighter urine output. You don't have to go by wet diapers alone to make sure your baby has enough to eat. If you're breastfeeding, your body will let you know. At 9 months old, your little guy should take in 16 to 24 ounces of breast milk or formula daily—spread out over four to five feedings or every four to five hours—along with up to 1 cup of solids, given in between liquids. After a feeding, your baby will show contentment. If you're breast-feeding, your breasts will feel softer and the nipples will have returned to their approximate shape from before the feeding.
