My son is 4 months old and been really sick with diareaha and vomitting. The doctor has him on a pedialyte only diet for the next 24-48 hours. I got the flavored kind. He was ok with apple but loves grape.

yes, you can give your little one pedialyte. it is designed to keep them hydrated when they are sick. so giving her fluids is perfect. there are various flavors so my suggestion is fi you give her a flavored kind of pedialyte dilute it with some water first.

also remember to refrigerate the pedialyte after you open it and even after that its only good for 48hours after you open it.

yes, try thr pediapops too if you don't mind the mess, at 7 months he is probably doing some teething too

You sure can, and I'd recommend it if she's not keeping anything down. My youngest had a bad case of gastro at about that age and the doctor actually told me to just give him pedialyte for a day and then slowly re-introduce milk (he was breastfed). If you have a dropper or syringe, give one or two ml at a time and don't push too much too fast or she'll just spew that too.

Keep a very close eye out for dehydration. Signs such as: sunken fontanelle, dry lips/mouth, no tears (none when crying) and listlessness. If you see these signs, I'd suggest getting to casualty ASAP.

Good luck!

I was told to give my daughter Pedialyte at 3.5 months. The doctor was worried she had rotavirus and had me give her pedialyte 3x's a day.
