When your baby has diarrhea or is vomiting, the last thing that you want to do is to have to haul him to the store. That’s why Pedialyte is a good thing to have on hand at all times.
Pedialyte is the number one pediatrician-recommended oral rehydration fluid. Pedialyte is therapeutic hydration because it is specially formulated to replenish vital minerals and nutrients lost during diarrhea and vomiting to help prevent dehydration.
You might be surprised to learn that sports drinks, sweetened sodas, and juices don’t meet medical guidelines for helping prevent dehydration due to diarrhea and vomiting in children. In general, these drinks are too high in carbohydrates (sugar) and too low in the mineral sodium, which is an important electrolyte that is lost when a child has diarrhea and vomiting. Plus, drinks containing too much sugar can actually make diarrhea worse. (Talk with your doctor before giving your baby this or any medication.)
