  • MIY: Homemade Pedialyte

    I tried to convince myself I wasn’t getting sick.  The other night my baby girl crawled into my arms, burped and puked.  Somehow, I knew it was coming, so I turned her out and away from me as quickly as I could, but not before getting my whole arm redecorated.

    We don’t live conveniently close to any stores out here so hopping in the car at 10:30 at night wasn’t happening.  And with D leaving for school early the next morning, it didn’t look like I was going to get out any time soon.  So, here we go, Pedialyte:  because, I would rather make it myself anyway.

    Add one-half ( ½) teaspoon of salt to the fresh water.

    Add one-half ( ½) teaspoon of baking soda to the fresh water.

    Add three (3) teaspoons of sugar to the fresh water.

    Add one-half ( ½) package of unsweetened Kool-Aid(any flavor) to the fresh water. (Kool-Aid packets are roughly $.35, while a bottle of Pedialyte is $5)

    I found the original recipe HERE

    Now, you don’t have to add the Kool-Aid, it just gives it a little flavor.  If you have Kool-Aid on hand and it’s already sweetened or sugar-free, omit the sugar from the recipe.  Also, if you have any drink mixes like, Crystal Light, you can add that instead.  It’s just to make it a little more appealing.  In my case, I didn’t have any Kool-Aid at all, I just added food coloring to make it look yummy.

    It’s flu season :(   Let’s keep our babies as healthy as we can.
