Mix Pedialyte & 7Up?

My little man has thrown up about 5-6 times in the past 3 hours. I have Pedialyte (unflavored) and the only thing I have to mix it with is crystal light. Hes not digging it. He said he just wants water, but thats not going to help his belly. We are not juice drinkers. He realllly likes soda because he never gets it, would it benefit at all to mix it with 7up?

Question About Breastfeeding or Not?!

I have a question about whether or not I should stop breastfeeding. I have been breastfeeding for 6 months, and that was my goal, however I would have liked to try and make it to a year. Well, I was having some difficulty and my milk production is WAY down. Now I know some of that has to do with her growth spurt, me having taken sudafed with my sinus infection, and with her sleeping through the night now. Well, the real debate here is because I have donated eggs in the past to couples that can't have children on their own. There is a...

Help with Digestion Issues

Hi Moms, I need some help for my little boy. For the past two weeks he has had a cold/infection (stuffy nose, cough, etc). It runs for a couple of days, gets better, and then comes back. At the same time he is having some digestion issues, mainly diarrhea. He has not had a solid bm in 2 weeks. On doctors orders, we fed him nothing but formula, pedialyte, rice cereal and bananas for days. Not helping. Do you have any of your own ideas on how to treat this chronic diarrhea? We need it to stop as we can not give him antibiotics for the...

Teething and Not Eating

I may be over reacting but she is my baby... we are in full out teething mode.. at 20weeks! It is definately teething so please don't tell me she is too young. It appears to be focused on the lower left side. Anyway, she has not eaten since around 5am this morning (it is almost 3pm now). She is hungry, she attacks the bottle when I offer it but after a couple sucks, she pulls away crying and puts her hand to her mouth. I have tried cold teethers, not cold teethers, hylands tablets, a homeopathic gel, a frozen washcloth (she usually...

Refusing to Take Pedialyte

My son is 8 months old and is vomiting. I have tried giving him different pedialyte flavor drinks to help reduce dehydration, but he is refusing to drink them. He did take a bottle but unfortunately that came back up after an hour. What can I give him instead or is there another way to give him pedialyte to ensure he stays hydrated?

Pedialyte and Hives

My almost 3 yr old had some Pedialyte a few days ago (first and only time she's had it). Then two days later she got hives. Has anyone else experienced this? I went online, and it is listed as a common symptom. She had them yesterday; then after the meds, they went away. Now they are back again, but in different spots. I have lots of experience with excema (she gets it alot), not so much with hives. Any advice/tips would be greatly appreciated.

Is She Trying to Wean?

I have a bit of a problem. I have an eight month old who I have breast-fed since birth. I introduced her to solids (cereal) when she was four months.She gets other solids as well. Things were going great until The last three weeks. She bit me once and I tried removing her and replacing her. THat din't work. All she started doing then was slide to the end of my nipple and bite. After the third time, she really bit hard. I yelled and put her down. She was very upset. I picked her up and tried again. This time she was very careful and was...
