Never " Wee-Wee" 

Good day Doc
Not sure if this is even a concern, but here goes. My daughter is 4.7 years old. She loves water, juice and sometimes we''ll even give her some soup at night. She can come from creche so 5-ish. I''ll give her juice, maybe she''ll even have water. Also maybe so by 6:30, I''ll give her some soup now in winter, but she never pee. She can have up to 5 different types of liquids before she goes to bed, but before she goes to bed, she doesn''t go to toilet, doesn''t wet the bed, also come morning, she will never go like most of us. Yes she does go when the need is there, but not as often as I would think as she drinks a lot. She very regular when it comes to number 2 business and never complain about constipation or anything like that. She never " hold it"  in. Is there any concern for this or it is very normal.

This is unusual. Passing less than the normal amount of urine has the medical term of 'oliguria' This can be a sign of significant problems with the kidneys and urinary system.Your daughter appears to be very healthy and just seems to pass less urine than normal.It would still be a good idea to ask your paediatrician to see her.Her urine must be tested and it is worthwhile having an ultra-sound done of her kidneys and urinary tract just to be sure that all is normal.
