Human milk is the ideal source of nutrition for the healthy neonate. Milk from the mother whose diet is sufficient will supply the necessary nutrients. It is a considerable problem to discern if the milk supply is the adequate quantity for the infant. If the infant’s water and caloric needs are not met for several days, signs and symptoms of hypernatremic dehydration >10% may develop. This report presents a case of a 15-day-old, breast-fed infant who developed significant hypernatremic dehydration.
