In brief: Not recommended

I gather that you want to prepare an oral rehydrating solution at home.
If this is for an infant, it is not recommended and pedialyte, etc.is best. Otherwise, please clarify why you want to do this, since if is often unnecessary, depending on situation. In countries without resources, here is a page for you: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oral_rehydration_therapy Again, though please clarify.
