You may.: You may give pedialyte. However remember pedialyte does not provide enough calories. Pedialyte is not a medicine. It just helps to keep the hydration. If your 3 month old is taking feeds, it is better to continue breast-feeding. You can also express your breast milk and feed with a spoon in small amounts.
