Normal Urine Flow

How many times is it normal for a baby to urinate

There is no set number of times that babies pass urine.  Some babies pass urine 12-15 times a day (or even more), others pass urine only 8 times a day.  As newborns, they pass urine much more frequently.  As babies get older, they urinate fewer times in a day, but tend to pass a lot more urine each time.

Can the urine flow tell me if my baby is getting enough fluids

Yes.  Whether the baby is breastfed or bottlefed, as long as she passes urine atleast 7-8 times in a 24-hour period, the baby is considered to be getting enough fluids (or enough milk, in the case of exclusively breastfed babies).  If the baby starts passing urine fewer times, then you should consult your doctor for advise. 

Can I tell when my baby is most likely to urinate

Babies have their own schedules.  Some babies pass urine within a couple of minutes of feeding, others wait for 5-10 minutes.  In general, however, babies are most likely to pass urine some time soon after feeding.  So if you would like to know when you will definitely have to change her nappy, this is the time.
