There are some steps that should be taken to deal with dehydration in your kiddo:

1. Encourage your child to drink but in small amounts especially if your child is vomiting.

2. Provide your child with ORS (Oral Rehydration Solution) which helps to replace the fluids and salts lost in the body during diarrhea and vomiting. It is available in different flavors in the market.

3. If your child has diarrhea then do not give your kiddo any fruit juice or soft drink as the sugar in these drinks can make diarrhea worse.

4. Carefully monitor the urine output of your kiddo, if it is less or your kiddo has not passed urine for hours then consult your doctor immediately.
