Pedialyte Singles + bendy straw = more drinking and fewer spills

pedialyte.jpgBecky's hack may give you an iota of comfort during a flu day:

In the spirit of the current season… just came up with a simple hack for Pedialyte for toddlers and older kids. The single-serve bottle was a little hard to manage with the tipping up and the strange hole in the top (and sometimes they have sharp edges from breaking the top off). The hole is the perfect size for a standard size drinking straw, though, and a bendy straw lets your little patient sip and watch their favorite show uninterrupted. The straw also helps slow down the rate of spillage if the bottle gets knocked over/dropped. Hope this helps someone else who probably isn't having the best day…
