|When baby is sick, moms are sometimes told to discontinue or restrict breastfeeding and substitute an oral rehydration therapy such as Pedialyte. This outdated practice has been shown to offer no benefits to the breastfed baby, and can even delay healing.|
Have you ever tasted Pedialyte? YUCK.
For a kid who is weaned, they do make adult oral rehydration solutions which taste even worse than Pedialyte, but I think they leave out all the "kid-friendly" artificial coloring at least. What I do for my own self when I need something of the sort is to make a salty broth (I use bouillon cubes, but of course it's better to make your own broth and add salt-- maybe there are organic bouillon cubes, what do I know) and mix in rice. Like half a cup of cooked rice with a cup of broth, that ratio.
