14 months old. Passed stool 5 times from morning. Given zn drops, ORS. Anything to worry?

Hi, my child is around 14 months, since today morning she has passed stools 4-5 times. Initially solid to start with and then a little waters. But for the last 2-3 hours she is fine and doing well, infact she was playful the whole time. We had given her Zn drop (1ml) and frequently giving here ORS and a prebiotic/ probiotic solution suggested by the doctor earlier. This is the first time since birth she had this issue. Is there anything to worry or is it very normal during this age

Thanks for your query.
Diarrhea is mostly viral in nature and takes few days to settle.
Most important is to maintain proper hydration.
Continue with oral rehydration solution,prebiotic for 2 to 3 days and zinc for 14 days.
Also give coconut water,lemonade,banana,boiled potato.curd.rice porridge.
Monitor for features of dehydration like lethargy,decreased urine output,lethargy and in case you find any get her evaluated by pediatrician.

Wishing your baby good health.
God bless.
