Welcome to Healthcare Magic!
Small children of this age mostly get loose motions due to viral infections.
You should make sure that child gets enough liquids to replace the volume of fluids lost in the stools.
The disease is self limiting and antibiotics are not necessary.
You should feed the child with cooked rice with sugar and curds twice a day whatever amount the child can take.
You can use enterogermina drops twice a day.
Liquid diets is the most important step in the management.
I hope the answer would be helpful for you.
