Hi dear,
Thanks for your query. Make sure you are showing your daughter to a good pediatrician. High TLC means that there is infection. Your doctor feels that antibiotics need to be given. But request him if possible to give oral medications as long as the baby is taking orally. Antibioics are given for infection.
Just keep her hydrating with lots of fluids like butter milk with salt, tender coconut water, rice kanji, plain water. Also give oRS which are salt packets which needs to be dissolved with water. Give atleast 100 ml of it for every loose stool. Give paracetamol for fever and follow instructions given by your doctor. She will be fine in few days.
Take care
