Quoting CottonCandyKiller:" so DD has been sick for almost 2 wks now. DH and i got the diagnosis of Flu type B the other day, and ... [snip!] ... need pedialyte (sp). i'm just worried about her loosing weight or becoming dehydrated. would you give her pedialyte anyway?"
Quoting snglemama:" how old is she? is she throwing up? loose stools? if dr isn't worried... why ask for advice here? ... [snip!] ... need pedialyte. It's not necessary just because she's sick. Does she have signs of dehydration, or are you just worried? "she's not putting out as many wet diapers, but not so few that doc is worried. he had said normally she should get about 35 oz a day, she's been drinking about 24-28 lately.
