You've seen photos of Jack holding the Gatorade bottle: http://bostonprmom.blogspot.com/2008/01/refueling.html
Well today he drank some. I figured it was pretty much the same as that Pedialyte stuff, so what harm could it do? I admit it does have a fair amount of sugar in it, but it's not like I gave him a 20 oz. bottle of it... just a few sips. Needless to say he enjoyed it.
Tomorrow I'm running him back to the doctor to have his hacking cough checked out... just to be on the safe side. Last night he coughed a whole lot, but never really woke up because of it. It's too bad there's no cough medicine for babies... that would be a big help right now.
