I am selling this product because we bought it and never ended up needing it. It is a sealed 237 ml bottle of Pediatric Electrolyte Cherry Flavour Expiring February 2008 which prevents dehydration and restores fluids and minerals that are lost in diarrhea or vomiting. It has great taste and fits standard baby bottle nipples too.
