Can you drink ORS with water? 1 year olds drink the pedialyte electrolytes dextrose brand

1 Answer:

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

Basically pedialyte is an electrolyte solution that is ready to drink and is not recommended to be mixed with water again. Pedialyte is also not recommended to be mixed with other liquids such as milk, fruit juice, etc. Mixing this solution with water will cause the amount of electrolytes that enter the child's body to be less than it should.


If you give regular ORS (in the form of powder), then you really have to mix this powder with water. However, you must really pay attention to the instructions for mixing the water so that the amount of electrolyte that enters does match what is needed by the child.


If the child doesn't really like the taste of ORS, you can give other fluids that the child prefers rather than leaving the child not drinking. You may give milk, formula milk, soup broth, coconut water, fruit juice, or other electrolyte liquids.
