    Newborn with tummy ache

    Newborn with Tummy ache My 5 week old grand daughter had some congestion last week and ER Dr recommended giving her Pedialyte. We purchased the grape flavored because that was all the store offered. She took it for 2 days until her congestion problem passed. Now we are having a difficult time getting her to take her formula again, I assume, because the Pedialyte was so much sweeter than the formula...she just cries when we try to feed formula...any thoughts?
