Pink Urine

Pink Urine

In the first few days after birth, many babies pass a urine that leaves a brick red stain on the front of the diaper.  This is not blood, it’s something called uric acid. Uric acid is a breakdown product of DNA, and newborns burn through a lot of DNA.   The appearance of this brick red stain in the urine is harmless and almost always clears by one week of age.
