Thanks for your query.
After viral illness it usually takes some time to pass normal consistency and frequency of stools.
Since she is active and is feeding normally there is nothing to worry.
Give coconut water,vegetable soup, mashed banana.boiled potato.curd,rice porridge.
Decrease amount of milk for few days.

Wishing your baby good health.
God bless.

Pl do not worry.It is OK to pass 3-4 stools per day if the consistency is normal.
Viral gastro enteritis takes some time to become completely normal.
The child would have lost some weight also and will recover soon.
The food you are giving is fine.
Take care Dr Uma
