Watermelon contains fibres and is juicy so it helps in constipation but it should not cause loose motions in child.The loose motions at 9 months can be due teething also and mild infection.See if the loose motions stop on its own it may be due to watermelon and if not then it can be due to infection or due to teething diarrhoea and for that she may need treatment.
