Hydration: As long as he wets a diaper every 6 hours or more he is retaining enough to stay hydrated. If he doesn't wet in 8-12 hrs it is time to have him seen. Breast milk is well designed to help these sick kids. Sometimes popsicle pieces or small amounts of chilled apple sauce are accepted by these kids & help.
