Thanks for your query.
Your child is having diarrhea which is mostly viral in nature and take few days to settle.
It is very good that he is active.
I suggest you to give him oral rehydration solution sip by sip after each loose stools.give coconut water,curd,banana,boiled potato.
Give lactobacillus for 2 to 3 days and observe any features of dehydration like lethargy,decrease urine output,increased thirst,sunken eyes and in case there ia any get pediatric consultation.
Wishing your baby good health.
God bless.

You did not mention what feeds the child is on.!
Green watery stools are definitely abnormal and the cause is mostly viral.
The essential part of management is replacing fluids with oral electrolytes like pedialyte and it will take 5-6 days to settle.
Till then watch the child ,for adequate urine output,and good activity .If any abnormal signs take to the doctor.Good luck
