Pediatrician 's  Response
thanks for your query to healthcare magic.

you is daughter is probably suffering from viral gastroenteritis. don't worry she will recover soon, meanwhile continue breastfeeding, give oral rehydration solution (ORS) 50-100ml per each episode of vomiting or diarrhoea.

if problem persists for more than a week, or she is not breastfeeding or her urine output is low, consult a pediatrician immediately.

take care,

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

If your daughter is six month old then you should start her with other feeds.
Start with a new item and add new food item weekly.

Green color of the stool is because of increased bowel motility and is not of much significance.
Continue to give her breast feeding. I congratulate you for breast feeding your baby.

Hope this helps.
Take care.
