9 month old started teething. Suffer from diarrhea. Eating BRAT diet with formula milk. Need to be worried about the diarrhea?

Hi, I have a 9 month old baby with diarrhoea for over a week. She seems to be teething . I tried BRAT (banana, rice, applesauce, toast) but it does not seem to change anything. Mind due she still gets her formula milk besides BRAT diet . She eats and drinks well, she is full of energy and happy. Should I get worried? Any advice of what else I can try? thank you.

THERE ARE NO REASONS FOR YOUR WORRY.
YOU CAN STOP BRAT DIET AS IT IS NOT REALLY HELPFUL.
AVOID SUGARY & FIZZY DRINKS AS WELL TOO MUCH OF FRUIT JUICES.
JUST NEED A NORMAL DIET.
CAN TRY PROBIOTICS & ZINC SUSPENSION .
IT IS USEFUL TO KNOW THE FREQUENCY & CONSISTENCY OF LOOSE STOOLS .
AS LONG AS HER ORAL INTAKE IS GOOD & SHE IS NOT LOSING WEIGHT YOU SHOULD NOT WORRY AT ALL.
HOPE YOU FIND THE INFO USEFUL.
