First, a website for pediatrician's who give you information about when you should bring your child in to the doctor, and what you can do at home.
Second, a homemade recipe for Pedialyte. Or rather, three recipes, if you follow the link.
- 1 quart sterile water
- 1TBSP sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- can flavor with kool-aid granules
Keep refrigerated and use within a couple of days.
This is a good recipe for freezing into popsicles for your patient, or just for drinking (with a straw for a treat!).
