Thank you for your query,
Your child seems to have gastroenteritis mostly due to a virus.
Continue frequent breastfeeding and probiotic like lactobacillus sachet can be given orally after mixing in expressed breast milk.
Consult your Pediatrician for the examination of your baby and interpretation of stool report and to advise the appropriate medication.
Hope I have answered your query.

Pediatrician Dr. Synthyia Bhagat's  Response
Thanks for your query.
Your baby is having diarrhea which is mostly viral in nature and takes few dys to settle.
I suggest you to get her examined by pediatrician (as one of stool samples show RBC 18 TO 20)
regarding proper management.
In the meantime continue with breastfeeding,oral rehydration solution sip by sip after each loose stool.
Give lactobaccilus for 2 to 3 days.

Wishing your baby good health,
God bless.
