Thank you for your query,
Whenever child gets loose motions, the mainstay of treatment is to replace the losses of water and electrolytes in loose stools by giving oral sips of rehydrating solutions like WHO ORS, dal water, coconut water.
Probiotic and zinc can be added to treatment after consulting your Doctor.
Monitoring of hydration is important.
If the loose motions still continues or any signs of dehydration present, consulting the doctor and taking the proper medical advise is important in the management of diarrhea.
Hope i have answered your query.
