RECIPE: Pedialyte and Homemade Baby Formula
I was looking for a recipe for Pedialyte and found an additional recipe that might help anyone out there with a baby. My DD was ill a while back and I went to the store to buy Pedialyte, VERY EXPENSIVE! I'll be trying the homemade version next time. The homemade formula is a little iffy in my standards, but I remember running out of formula a few times when the weather was crazy and wishing there was something I could substitute it w/ for a few hours.
1/2 tsp tablesalt
1/4 tsp salt substitue
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp sugar
1) Mix everything w/ 1 liter boiling water. 2) Feed 1 ltr to supplement the regular nutrition of a child, 6 months or older, w/ severe diarrhea. (I think you could add an unsweetened packet of Kool-Aid to this for flavor.)
Homemade Baby Formula
CAUTION: Breastmilk is #1, Commercial brands are #2, this is #3 You should consult a doctor before switching formulas as in some children it can cause stomach discomfort!
2(12 oz) cans evaporated milk
32 oz water
2 tbsp Karo syrup
3 mL Poly Vi Sol vitamins
