what to give to a 2 yr old who has had diarrhea for several days and starting puking a fe whours ago? he is also running a temp (not sure how high as i don't usually check the actual temp anyways) and just plain miserable.
inexpensive suggestions please for how to best keep him hydrated? i had a bottle of powerade so i watered that down a bit and tried to get him a few sips of it....
other things i have are cranberry juice, and grape juice, as well as pediasure, btu he doesn't really drink it much when well even plus the fact that it is dairy based.
i still have more than half a bottle of powerade too if that winds up being the best bet for him. is "pedialyte" much different than powerade? they both have salt and sugar, are they in similar amounts?
i am still pumping , but get less than 4 oz a day now, so i AM giving him mama's milk, but obviously <4 oz isn't gonna cut it for a feverish, pukey, kiddo who has runny poo.
thanks if you ahve any suggestions.
