This week my sweet, almost one year old, is sick. Diarrhea. At least he keeps smiling, although his little bum is so sore and hurts everytime we change his diaper! Because of him being sick I have come across two great things.
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.

Homemade Pedialyte

  • 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!).
