Re: Baby has diarrhea--breastmilk vs. pedialyte?
Breastmilk is better, but don't be surprised if your pediatrician recommends Pedialyte. Many docs don't realize that the rules that apply to formula-fed babies (who are often given Pedialyte instead of or in addition to formula) do not apply to breastfed babies.
Breastmilk: proper electrolyte balance + antibodies + nutritional value + familiar and comforting taste
Pedialyte: proper electrolyte balance, nothing else!
