Getting loose stools in baby, while weaning and starting solid food is normal.
But it will not be so frequent and baby will quite ok, no irritability, no fever or crankiness due to abdominal pain.
Most important thing is continue her feeding- either semisolid/breastfeeding also if possible.
Give her ORS [oral rehydration solution] as much as she takes.
As stool is green coloured; it is likely to be infectious. Chances of rota virus diarrhea are higher in babies.
Consult pediatrician again; he will do needful now.
But do not let your baby dehydrate, continue feeding.
Take care.
Best regards,
Dr. Neelam.
