    A simple, inexpensive, non-invasive method for urine collection was used in 28 consecutive infants for periods of 48 hours (n = 10) and 72 hours (n = 18). The incidence of urine collector detachment was low on the first and second days (< 4%) and increased significantly on the third day (28%). Volume of urine leaked was < 4% of the total volume collected daily. This method is applicable to both sexes and is reliable for up to 48 hours.
