I am planning a homebirth in around 10 days (we'll see!) and found the following recipe for homemade Gatorade, which my midwife approved. She said it's similar to the one she uses, but she doesn't put calcium in. The recipe doesn't say what dosage tablets to use. I bought some 600 mg. calcium carbonate chewable tablets. Does anyone know what the dosage should be?

1/3 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup honey
1/4 to 1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. baking soda
1-2 crushed calcium tablets

Mine just says the same as your recipe. Try doing a google search? Good luck on your birth!
