Thanks for the query.
You have not mentioned about the frequency of the stools. If its pasty and less than 3 times in a day without fever, then you need not worry.

Is he on formula feeds too? some kids on formula milk pass green stools.

Since antibiotic, probiotic course etc are over, its better to keep her off medications.
Till she is okay, its better to avoid cerelac, formula milk, juices. This might increase the frequency further.
If she is on breast feeds, you may continue with that.

You may start mashed banana, Mashed potato, rice based diet.
Include curd in her diet. If milk is needed, you may give her soyamilk for few days.

With these dietary modifications, she will get okay.
Hope my answer helps you.
Wish your kid a speedy recovery.
