Re: Dehydration and pedialyte
No need for Pedialyte as long as baby is being nursed on demand and staying hydrated. Breastmilk contains everything Pedialyte does, in terms of electrolytes, plus fat and protein, which Pedialyte doesn't have. From a nutritional standpoint, breastmilk is much better than Pedialyte, which is for use in formula-fed babies or in breastfed babies who are dehydrated and not nursing.
