How to Feed Your Child When They’re Sick

Focus on Fluids

    • <12 months: 20-24 oz breastmilk or formula
    • 1-3 years: 4 cups or 32 oz.
    • 4-8 years: 5 cups or 40 oz.
    • 9-13 years: 7-8 cups or 56-64 oz.

Don’t worry about counting ounces, watch your child!

  • Signs of dehydration include dry lips or mouth, fewer wet diapers or trips to the bathroom, loss of energy, less interest in playing, or a change in skin tone/color.
