My little guy has been sick for quite some time. Nothing major...just a series of colds (this is his first year in day care...and they seem to be passing things back and forth). Today, he woke up with a minor fever, so I stayed home with him. He's had very little to drink today...not even 1/2 a cup of apple juice. I can't inspire him to drink anything. He hates things that are sweet (he barely tolerates apple). So, I fed him oranges and grapes since they are "juicy". I'm a little worried. How do I keep him hydrated when he won't drink anything? Pedialyte seems ironic. Yes, it might hydrate him, but if he won't drink it, it does me no good. Any suggestions?
