Thanks for writing to WWW.WWWW.WW .
Most of the diarrhoeas are due to virus. If there is no blood in motion there is no need to give antibiotics.But you have to give him liquids like gruel, tender coconut water, oral electrolyte solution.
If he is thirsty and asking for liquids give him all home available liquids Restrict milk but you can give homemade yogurt.
Wishing your kid a speedy recovery.
