Yes, one should be concerned

Because it is most likely a case of rota virus induced diarrohoea

This is the commonest cause of diarrohoea in such age

Main treatment is re-hydration with "ORS" (MARKET AVAILABLE ORAL REHYDRATION SOLUTION.

Antibiotics will have limited role

Give frequent light feeds, soft diets, avoid high protein, ripe banana could be helpful

Consult pediatrician immediately without any delay: If the frequency and amount of stool increases, child look dehydrated, skin wrinkles, extremities become cold, looks dull and lethargy

Giving ORS is the mainstay of treatment to prevent complications
