Her pediatrician recommended 1 ounce pedialyte every hour, and for her to nurse if she was interested. I asked if I should pull her off after a few minutes and then put her back on the same side (for up to 2 hours) after 10-15 minutes, so she wouldn't get too much in her stomach at once, and he thought it was a good idea.
Her broher had to get IV fluids (wasn't admitted, just went to the ER) from dehydration from this, so I know that it can be really bad. I just want to make sure she's getting enough, but not so much that she can't take it.
We will be bringing her in tomorrow to make sure she's hydrated - are the steps I'm taking up there with the Pedialyte and nursing ok?
