1. Dissolve one tablet in 100 ml drinking water (even if you need less solution, each tablet must be dissolved in 100 ml of water).
2. Wait until the tablet is fully dissolved (stir if required).
3. Give 10 ml of solution per kg body weight each time the body’s fluid needs to be maintained. Always give O.R.S solution to young children in small quantities over an extended period of a time (for example, a small quantity every few minutes). This way the solution is absorbed efficiently in the body.
* Never dissolve O.R.S in baby formula milk. Preferably, give O.R.S before bottle-feeding or breastfeeding to help sufficient amounts to be consumed more easily. Afterwards, feed as normal.
