My $0.02, but I think some of the options on the website Louis provided look better. The recipe you had sugar and sodium chloride, but there are a lot of other electrolytes you lose with diarrhea which are potentially even more important (especially potassium). Pedialyte also has bicarbonate in it which you also lose with diarrhea.

: Do you think this recipe:

: Mix 1 quart of water, 1 tablespoon sugar and 1 teaspoon of salt. Add a bit of UNSWEETENED kool-aid, and you have homemade Pedialyte--but without the expense.

: is a good substitute for pedialyte? I don't want to buy more pedialyte for $4/liter if that works just as well. What a scam!

: (I don't actually need it right now. Erik was sick yesterday but is pretty ok today other than whining a lot.)
