Calculate the total amount of the drug injected based on the child's body weight. Use 40-50 ml per kg of baby's weight per day. In case of diarrhea of ​​moderate severity, use "Rehydron" in a daily amount of 80-100 ml per kg of body weight, increase a single intake to 2 teaspoons.

Bring the total amount to a minimum of 500 ml. Then repeat this regimen every 40 minutes until the symptoms of overheating and electrolyte deficiency are completely eliminated.
