I'm no pediatric nurse, but if the baby is getting enough milk or formula (one way you would know: seems to be healthy, gaining normal amt. of weight for age, alert and active compared to age), water can also be used such as on hot days. If by strong you mean the urine is somewhat darker, it could be needing more fluids. If the odor is unusual a doctor or pediatric nurse could be consulfted.
