When My Kids Are Sick…


We live in Georgia and the past few months the weather has been insane !!! 68 one day and snowing and ice at 22 the next. With all that mix and mess my kids have had a runny nose and all the head junk for to long !! But I can normally handle that with breathing treatments and good essential oils. But last week both kids got the stomach virus which I consider to be the worst of the worst !

Jack my two year old is always the worst ! We had to make a trip to the ER for dehydration and the very first thing they brought me was Pedialyte I wasn’t surprised I ALWAYS use it !! But the doctor having it at hand in the ER was a huge plus. It was late and even though my Walmart is open 24 hours I didn’t want to get him out. But of course the next day I made a special trip to stock up.


Having sick kids is tuff especially if you have a full time job, two kids, homework, and a “real” life and most of the time we need some help my go to is and always will be Pedialyte it gives my kids back the real deal…. You know that stored up crazy hyper real kid feeling.

I’m wondering if there are any moms out there that has never tried Pedialyte ? It’s cheap and easy to find at Walmart and oh so worth every drop !


Pedialyte is the #1 pediatrician-recommended oral electrolyte solution.

We can lose vital fluids when we’re sick, but Pedialyte helps prevent mild to moderate dehydration.

Pedialyte is available in liquid, powder packs and freezer pops, making it easy to rehydrate at home or on the go.

Popular household beverages like sports drinks, juice, and soda don’t meet the medical guidelines for helping to prevent dehydration due to diarrhea and vomiting. These drinks are too high in sugar and too low in sodium, which is an important electrolyte lost due to diarrhea and vomiting.

Pedialyte comes in many flavors for children and adults and in different forms and sizes to suit their needs.

    My super, super, super (ugh! so annoying!) kids won't even drink pedialyte! but I make it into popsicles and they love it ;)

    In the UK we don't have any of this. We can get something called Diaoralyte from the Doctor but it can't be bought outright in our shops or pharmacies. It's a satchet of powder we add to water and tastes mildly of blackcurrant. I wish we sold things like this as it would save wasting a Doctors time when kids get tummy bugs x

    I don't have kids yet. Yet, gearing up, I wonder what the natural alternative is to such a product?

    Watching a child be sick is the worst feeling. Glad you found a products that works and shared it with others.
  5. says

    I'm not a mom but being sick is no fun and I'm sure watching your little one sick is horrible especially if in the hospital. I do have to laugh because I'm in Texas and we have 2 seasons in one day it will be 40 in the morning 80 by 1pm .
  6. says

    I'm sorry your babies are continually sick. Down here in Florida, it's slightly better, but this wacky weather is doing a number on my household as well. Hang in there! It'll be straight 80-90s soon enough!
  7. says

    All I can think of when I see Pedialyte is that scene from How to be Single where she drinks it to cure a hangover... maybe that's what I need since I don't have kids! haha http://communicationisdifficult.com/2016/02/11/rocksbox-subscription-jewelry-1/
  8. says

    I hope they both are feeling better love, and that you get some well deserved rest after nursing them back to health! xx
  9. says

    Oh no!! I hope our kids feel better soon <3 Mindy

    When my four month old was in the ER with pneumonia and a double ear infection, Pedialyte is the first thing they gave her! She had only eaten an ounce here and there for about 10 hours. She chugged it right down and it immediately had her acting more alert. It was so scary! Now we keep it on hand any time she is sick.
  11. says

    I never had to use pedialyte with my own child, but I have a friend whose daughter went through that stuff like crazy.
  12. Robin Rue (@massholemommy) says

    I've always used Pedialyte for my kids. It works awesome.
  13. says

    I’ve never heard of Pedialyte. Seems like a really good and effective solution, I’ll take it into consideration!
  14. says

    We always keep some in our house for those sudden sicknesses! It always seems to help him feel better. We've even used it for ourselves when needed (great for hangovers).
  15. says

    I've definitely seen the magic that is pedialyte when babysitting a super sick kid. She hated the taste, which I thought was odd, but I definitely noticed that it worked. I didn't know they had it for adults, I may need to stock up for myself!!
  16. says

    I'm not fond of that kind of sick. It's one of my fears. People throwing up makes me run for the hills. It's very important to keep hydrated when it does happen though.
  17. says

    I love that they make a clear version. My kids always bring it back up so hate the color ones.
  18. says

    I love Pedialyte too. When my son had serious bowel movements and I was worried he would be dehydrated, that's what we had him drink. Thankfully, he doesn't hate the taste of it.
  19. says

    Oh yeah Pedialyte is a very great thing for when kids are need hydration. Love the fact that they have different flavors
  20. says

    I could never get my kids to drink pedialyte when they were sick. I like the comment about making it into popsicles. That might work.
  21. says

    What is your full time job? Yes pedialyte is a great product to keep sickness under control great way to raise awareness.
  22. says

    We have had crazy weather in the midwest as well. Pushing fluids is always best for a sick kid or adult.
  23. Elizabeth O. says

    It's crazy when our kids are sick. It's better if it were us, right? It's like double the worry and the panic. I am so thankful there are plenty of ways to make them feel better. Pedialyte is a regular in our household too when the kids are sick.
  24. says

    I always have one of these at home! The best thing about this is the different flavor they have!
  25. says

    I love pedyalite it's amazing and very useful not only for kids plus the variety is amazing wich is extremely helpful with the kids
  26. says

    Funny thing, we are having the same weather here in Northern Florida and my son has the head cold. I have had to increase his fluids as well.
  27. says

    When I lived in the USA and my little cousins would get sick we would always get them Pedialyte. I haven't given this to my son though. He hates anything that may resemble medication lol I think I should make Popsicle out of them next time.
  28. Rosey says

    We used to aleays keep this on hand when the kids were little. It works great and gives you peace of mind.
  29. says

    I gave that to my kids. It's such a great way to make sure they're hydrated!
  30. says

    I hope he feels better soon, its hard when your kid is sick. I heard this product from a friend of my who's daughter was sick. This is good to prevent dehydration.
  31. says

    I love pedialite!!!! Now only if I could get my kiddo to drink it when she's sick! I will admit at my old age, I still drink it if I've been throwing up etc....
  32. says

    Thank you for sharing!! It's so hard to watch little ones get sick! :(
  33. katrina g says

    My sister won't drink this, so my grandma mad it into Popsicle's.
  34. says

    Pedialyte is a life saver when the kids are sick! I live in Alabama so I totally relate to the crazy weather. It has been nuts. I'm glad your little man is feeling better. ER tripe are no fun!
  35. Colette @ restyle it wright says

    I've occasionally used this when my kids were little but luckily they have grown out of those days! Hope he feels better!
  36. Debra says

    We really struggle to get my older daughter to drink fluid when she is sick, so we use pedialyte like crazy!
  37. laura londergan says

    I was really lucky when my daughter was little as she hardly got sick but when she did , I used this. It totally works
  38. says

    Having sick kids is hard work- especially when you have more than one sick at the same time. We use pedialyte and we love the pedialyte pops too!
  39. says

    Having sick kids is the worst. I always feel so bad for my kids when they are sick. :( Pedialyte does work well though!
  40. says

    My mom has used this for everything including animals since I was little. She swears by it! I don't remember drinking it as a child but I remember how healthy the dogs were!!
  41. says

    I hope he feels better?! Water is the only liquid our body really needs and of course a good medical solution is required! Get better
  42. says

    Taking a lot of liquid is certainly important when we're sick. Water and medical products like this are great solution to prevent from dehydration.
  43. says

    I love pedialyte for the kids! And it's great for dehydrated grown ups too!
  44. says

    I don't have kids yet, so this isn't something I have experience in. Thanks for sharing some of my options for the future! Be the author of your own story, Rebecca Kelsey Sampson

    He is so adorable, i hope hes feeling better. I didn't like when my children were sick I felt so bad for them. I remember sleeping with them because I was so afraid to leave them alone.

    Having sick kids is the worst. My sister uses Pedialite for my niece and nephew whenever they are sick,
