Q.

Night Bottle

Hi Professor,

My 2 year old son recently had diarrhoea and I put him on Hydrol. I would like to take him off the milk bottle at night as we live in a hot area and the milk often curdles. I think this may be the reason for the diarrhoea.

Would it harm him to put a teaspoon of glucose powder in water for him to drink at night?

Thank you.

This is probably not a good idea as it will damage your son's teeth and will not satisfy him.Make sure that he eats a good meal before bedtime and give him a cup of milk before he goes to sleep.
