A 46-year-old member asked:

Can I give my baby gatorade to treat dehydration?

2 doctor answers3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Scott J. Wolfson
Pediatrics 22 years experience
No: For babies who need hydration support i recommend using pedialyte or a similar product. This is absorbed much more readily than gatorade which has a much higher sugar content.For older children i often recommend using gatorade or other sports drink to flavor the unflavored pedialyte if it makes it more tolerable to drink.

Can I start feeding adult foods to my 8-month old?

Dr. Scott J. Wolfson

Yes: If your baby is interested in table foods mash the food to a consistency that your baby can handle and go for it. Watch out for choking hazards. I generally do not introduce whole dairy products, whole eggs, strawberries, or fish until closer to 12 months and nut/peanut products or shellfish until 3 years but that can vary as well.

How can I avoid dehydration in pregnancy?

Dr. Nicholas Fogelson
Specializes in Gynecology
Drink water: Drink at least eight glasses a day of water. If your urine is dark colored, you need to drink more. If you have having enough nausea that you cannot drink much water, talk to your doctor about using some medicines to decrease your nausea. There are several that are safe in pregnancy. Drinking in small quantities many times a day is usually better than trying to drinks lots at once.

When should adolescents and adults get vaccinated against tetanus? Should they get vaccinated with td or tdap?

3 doctor answers7 doctors weighed in
Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
Tdap: Adolescents and adults needing a tetanus booster should get the tdap. Some age limits apply. If the person already got a tdap less than 10 years ago, was an adult at that time, and is now getting another tetanus vaccine, he can get the td, without pertussis protection. Future recommendations regarding td and tdap may change.

Consult urologist.: In mean time get urine tested for infection or presence of sugar (to rule out diabetes) stop drinking after dinner. Set an alrm for 2 - 3 hours after you go to bed. Try a bedwetting alarm (malem, wet stop, nytone etc).
