I hate seeing my kids sick, don't you?
My 21 month old has had a rough week. He was diagnosed on Tuesday with a double ear infection plus a respiratory infection that started 2 weeks prior. Last night the poor guy was throwing up.
So today we rest. And do laundry. LOTS of laundry.
I am hoping the other two - especially the baby - don't get sick too!
As I was resting with the little sickie (who is much better, by the way), I came across a very timely blog post teaching how to make homemade pedialyte!
If you've had a sick little one recently, you've seen how expensive the real stuff is to buy - even store brand. The homemade version uses ingredients that you likely already have at home.
It's important to replenish those electrolytes after sick bouts!
Here's my favorite all-natural recipe. I have all these items at home on a regular basis. Make sure to check the link (to the right) to Baby Good Buys for the original post with more recipes that may work better for your families. ==>>>
Homemade Pedialyte Recipe #3
2 quarts water 1 teaspoon baking soda 2 1/2 tablespoons sugar 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 cup orange juice
Mix all ingredients together and serve. Refrigerate up to 3 days.
Once the little one falls asleep, I'll be making this and freezing into ice pops for him.
Have you made your own pedialyte before?
Frugally yours, Audra
