Pediatrician 's  Response
it depends on how many times child is having loose stools, consistency of stools whether its very very watery & how the child is?is the child active or very lethargic. simple loosestools with no other complication can be managed with plenty of oral liquids like rice kanji water, coconut water, plain water, ORS solution (about 100 ml for every large loose stool). please donot give any other medicines or glucose water. if its a normal loosestools, mostly is viral & will subside with in a week. your job is to hydrate child as much as possible. can give syrup Z&D 0.5 ml twice a day for 2 weeks.
