Mild Dehydration

Dehydration means your body does not have as much water and fluids as it should. Dehydration can be mild, moderate, or severe based on how much of the body’s fluid is lost or not replenished. When it is severe, dehydration is a life-threatening emergency. Severe dehydration can lead to death.

Common symptoms of dehydration are:

  • Not eating as well as usual
  • Thirst (babies may show thirst by crying and being irritable and eager to drink when something is offered)
  • Lack of urine or urine that is darker than usual
  • No tears when crying
  • Constipation
  • Not urinating as often as usual
  • Irritability
  • Weight loss
  • Dry mouth
  • Sunken soft spot in babies younger than 18 months
  • Skin that isn’t as springy or elastic as usual

Dehydration can be serious if left untreated. Restoring hydration can be difficult and medical attention is highly recommended.
