This is viral infection.
For loose motions give her oral electrolytes available in packets as powder mixed in clean water.
Give 1-2 oz after every loose stool.
Continue breast feeds.
She will improve soon!
All the best

Hi Chirag,
Thanks for writing your query.
As per the description written by you, it seems that your baby is having viral fever. For fever, continue giving crocin. For running nose and cogh, give her antihistaminic drops after getting her examined by a Paediatrician.
Green colour stool can be due to decreased bowel transit time. It can occur in diarrhoea.
Is she taking any antibiotic? Some antibiotics can also result in green coloured stools.
Get her examined by a Paediatrician.
I hope this is useful to you.
