When the body loses vital minerals and nutrients, it can quickly lead to dehydration. When that happens, using Pedialyte® immediately can help reduce the risk of dehydration.
If you see any of these warning signs, as identified by the Canadian Paediatric Society, call your doctor:
Decreased or absent urine output or fewer wet diapers
No/few tears when the child cries
Dry mouth or tongue
Elevated heart rate
Overly sleepy/lethargy (less than normal activity). This could be a sign of severe dehydration.
Irritability (more crying, fussiness). This could be a sign of severe dehydration.
Sunken eyes. This is a sign of severe dehydration.
