loose stools usually takes time to settle. you give her oral rehydration solution(ORS). give her rice kanji, dhal water, lemon juice with salt and sugar and tender coconut. give her oral zinc preparation 20MG per day which reduces stool output. only thing you have to watch is her hydration status. if she becomes tired, urine output comes down or tongue becomes dry then u take her to hospital for iv fluid. if she has blood in stool, abdominal pain high fever you may have to give antibiotic.
