Foul Smelling Urine

Hi
My nearly 3 year old has foul smelling urine, which appeared to start yesterday. She had the same problem about 4/5 months ago - I took her to the GP who tested her urine, but nothing was found. She sleeps in pull-ups at night.
What could be the problem?
Thanks

It is possible that your daughter's urine just becomes very concentated at times depending on how much water and fluids she drinks during the day or on her diet on that day.If her urine has been tested and is normal then this is reassuring.Her urine smell is unlikely to be due to her pullups..
