In brief: The amount matters

With a child having diarrhea (with or without vomiting), the amount of liquid a child drinks is even more important the what he is drinking.
Small, frequent sips (while awake) work the best. That may mean 1 teaspoon (5 ml) every 10 minutes for a baby with lots of diarrhea, to 1 ounce (30 ml) every hour for a baby with mild diarrhea. Pedialyte works better than half-strength gatorade.

In brief: DILUTE IT WITH

Some distilled water. I do not see any reason why not try it.
