Hi Harsha;
Welcome to HealthcareMagic
Loose motions are due to infection & Nor-metrogyl has controlled them so continue till another 3 days to make a total of 5 days if it does not stop then you will require to consult a paediatrician .Till then continue as it is ;give her enough water ;as for the sticky thing it is mucus in stool it will settle down .Please see a child specialist after 3 days if required ;if she is fine by then no need to worry.
