We thank Drs Grewal and Banco for their careful reading of our manuscript. Their observation highlights errors in the labeling of 2 tables that unfortunately went unnoticed. The n values in Table 3 are reversed. There were 50 families enrolled in the WHO-ORS group and 47 families enrolled in the C-ORS group. Table 5, which reflects families completing the follow-up interview, should read n = 42 for the C-ORS group and n = 49 for the WHO-ORS group. A footnote should have accompanied this table, indicating that in the WHO-ORS group, only 48 families responded to a few of the satisfaction measures. We regret any confusion this may have caused in the interpretation of our results.
