Directions for Use

1. Fluid and Mineral Replacement (rehydration) during the first 3– 4 hours:

Unless prescribed otherwise, infants and children are given about 10 ml per body weight and percent dehydration:

  • In the case of minimal dehydration (loss of up to 3% of the body weight): HiPP ORS 200 in a quantity of 20-30 ml/kg body weight within 3-4 hours.
  • In the case of mild to moderate dehydration (loss of 3-8% of the body weight): oral administration of HiPP ORS 200 in a quantity of 30-80 ml/kg body weight in 3-4 hours.
    In a child weighing 10 kg with a 5% loss in body weight this equals approx. 500 ml HiPP ORS 200 given over 3 to 4 hours, i.e. 125-165 ml/hour.

Dietetic therapy: oral rehydration and subsequent realimentation (diagramm)

2. Realimentation after 3 to 4 hours

In this phase, feeding with well-tolerated foods is started again:

  • Breastfed infants continue to be breastfed.
  • Bottle-fed infants in the 1st half year of life receive their accustomed milk formula again after the rehydration phase, number of bottles a day and drinking quantity as usual. It is not necessary to use lactose-free or lactose-reduced milk formulae.
  • Infants that are already on weaning foods receive their usual milk formulae and weaning food in full quantity and concentration after the rehydration phase. In severe cases, however, realimentation may also be provided in increments.
  • Older children initially receive a light diet and teas, starting e.g. with HiPP Baby’s First Carrot, HiPP Baby Carrots with Potatoes, HiPP Baby’s First Pumpkin, HiPP Pumpkin with Potatoes, HiPP Baby’s First Parsnip, HiPP Baby’s First Banana or HiPP Apple and Banana. Juices with a high sugar content (saccharose, fructose, sorbitol) should be avoided. The diet should return to a normal age-adequate diet after two to not more than five days.
