Sick Kid...

The Guyser puked 3 times between three times this morning, with the majority of the first even landing on me. Ah, the joys of motherhood. Any advice out there on how to get a 2 year old to drink Pedialyte? I have now tried Apple pedialyte, Gatorade, Squirt and he is having nothing of any of it. "Uck" is what I think he referred to it as! However, he did eat a bunch of soup. Here is hoping it stays down... and in.

more later..

When I worked in Peds, one of the docs said not to even bother w/ pedialyte. It has a salty taste that kids don't like. Don't do Gatorade, it's not recommended for sick kids. The best thing is to get him to drink plenty of water. Bottled water might be the best since it doesn't have that chlorine taste. Also try apple juice - it tastes a little bit better than water and won't stain your carpet if it comes back up again.

Chix noodle soup is good because of the sodium content - helps w/ electrolyte balance. It's sodium in a tastier form.
