When your infant or toddler is sick, running a fever, and throwing up your pediatrician probably recommends that you give your child pedialyte to help prevent dehydration. For some parents, Pedialyte is just too expensive to keep on hand, never knowing if you will actually use it. If you do not keep it on hand, you really do not want to take a sick child to the store to purchase some. Luckily, there is an inexpensive recipe that allows you to make homemade Pedialyte for your sick child. You can make the flavor your child prefers for just pennies a serving. If you are having trouble getting your child to take fluids, you can also freeze some into popsicles. If your child is runninga fever, the cold Popsicle may help reduce the fever while replenishing the electrolytes in your child’s body.
