RECIPE: Pedialyte and Homemade Baby Formula

ElsMaMaJune 20, 2002

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

Mix thoroughly and keep refridgerated.
