Being baby to dr: Bring baby to pediatrician, vomiting in newborn can be sign of congenital disorder, you shouldn't need pedialyte for newborn, do not give it before discussing with pediatrician

See below: If a child this young is vomiting, you need to talk with the child's doctor. I would not advise giving pedialyte without your doctor knowing.
