    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Hopefully someone can advise me on this. I have a 2 month old granddaughter and her mother gives her Pedialyte daily. Are there any risks involved in this?

    This is something that should be asked on our Baby's First Year community where our pediatric experts can address it.

    It is my non-professional gut feeling that no, it isn't a good idea daily unless the child has a medical condition that indicates that she needs hydration.
