Hi Arjun Poddar,
Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic,
You can continue sips of oral rehydrating solutions after each loose stool to prevent dehydration.
Give ORS in sip by sip and wait for 2 to 3 minutes in between sips.
If vomitings are ther you can give antiemetic like ondansetron in prescribed dosage.
Dont give any antibiotic without prescription.
Consult her Pediatrician for the assessment of hydration and antibiotic if required.
Hope I have answered your query.
