Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thanks for asking on this platform

I have gone through the query, seen the image and do understand your concern.
I won't get worried if baby is active, playful, accepting feeds well, passing urine, there is no blood in stool or vomiting.
I suggest you to give zinc 20 mg per day for 14 days with probiotic like Bifilac, Enterogermina or Econorm once a day for 3-5 days.
Give plenty of fluids to avoid dehydration. Avoid giving milk, juices, junk food as this may precipitate the loose stool.
In most of the cases loose stool improves within 3-4 days by routine care.
If you notice any significant abnormality please consult your pediatrician immediately.

I hope this helps.
Please let me know if you have any more questions.
Regards
