The nurses gave me a couple tips on dehydration--

**If the child has a sticky inside of mouth
**Lightly pinch his fingers and see if they pink up right away. It is normal for the fingers to pink up.
**Lightly pinch his skin and see if it goes down right away. It is normal for the skin to release quickly.

If your child is dehydrated, get him to the ER.
