Can i mix ors with formula so my baby accept the taste and take it  ?or it will change osmolarity and will not function?

?: You are using the ORS because your baby is having vomiting or diarrhea? I think ORS is best used without mixing with anything for 12-24 hours to maintain hydration and electrolyte balance.
