Welcome to HCM
Viral infection is common in this age. Usually it settles down within 5 -7 days.
Give her regular feeding. Give fluid liberally whether it is breast milk or formula.
Look after hygiene of the bottle, as she is formula fed. If the child is active, playful, passing urine; then no need to worry about stool frequency unless it is very watery or blood tinged.
Hope it's clear.
Thank you so much
