How to Recognize Potential Dehydration in Toddlers

(StatePoint) Dehydration in toddlers can occur for a variety of reasons, including illness, vomiting, and diarrhea. The first step is recognizing the indications. If your toddler is extremely tired, has cool, dry and blotchy skin, fewer tears when crying or a dry mouth and tongue, it’s important to quickly replace fluids and electrolytes.

To effectively replace electrolytes in toddlers fast, consider an electrolyte solution trusted by hospitals, such as Enfalyte, which is made by Enfamil, the number one brand of infant formula recommended by pediatricians. The solution is designed to quickly replace electrolytes and water that may be lost due to illness, vomiting or diarrhea.

Always consult with your pediatrician if you are concerned about dehydration.
