It should tell you on the back of the bottle how much there really is not an age to start giving it to them But if you are concerned call and ask a pharmicist they will let you know.

FROM PEDIALYTE.COM


Pedialyte can help



Pedialyte helps get kids back to normal fast, because it provides a precise balance of electrolytes, carbohydrates and water to help replace fluid and electrolytes quickly. Pedialyte is widely available in food, drug and discount stores. Be sure to keep some on hand.

How much is enough?

Offer your child small sips of Pedialyte® frequently.
Your child's total daily intake should be adjusted to meet his or her individual needs, based on thirst and response. The following suggested intakes for maintenance are based on water requirements for ordinary energy expenditure.*

My daughter is 1 also, and she's been sick this week.  She has a cold with runny nose, coughing, diarrhea but she's better now.  I gave her some pedialyte in a cup and make sure that's she's drinking a lot of liquids to replace what she's loosing.  Try a drink called Splash, it's water with fruit juice mixed with it.  It has a good taste she will like it.  Otherwise if it gets any worse to the hospital insurance or not.
