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?

14 Month Old Won't Eat...

For the past few days our fourteen month old has refused to eat almost anything but breastmilk. She has gone from eating breakfast, lunch and dinner with snacks in between and breatfeeding about three times a day, to only wanting to breastfeed. The day before all of this happened she had bad diarrhea several times. Now I cannot tell if she still has diarrhea, or if her poop has just changed back to a more liquidy yellow because of the breastmilk. She is cutting some teeth so I don't know if that might have something to do with it. ...

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?

15 Month Old Not Eating but Has Diarrhea

My 15 month old son has not been eating the last few days. He will take a taste here and there but not eat at his normal rate and as much as he usually do. He has also had about 3 to 4 diarrhea diapers a day for the last week. I am still nursing so he is getting some nourishment that way. Any suggestions on what to give him to drink or eat? I normally just give him water, but I would like to see him drinking more fluids now. thanks

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.

How to Wean My 5 Month Old Son?

He will not take a bottle or sippy cup with formula or my breastmilk from anyone. I am going back to work soon and I need ideas. With my daughter she was taking pumped milk in a bottle from the time she was 2 weeks. My son will not take one and he is going to be in daycare. I really don't want to pump, I just want to wean him except at night. Any ideas would be appreciated.
