Brief Answer:
Give ORS

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query. You have not mentioned the age of your daughter. If the child is more than a year old,you need to check for dehydration and to give ORS (oral rehydration solution). It is very important to ensure proper hydration. I would also insist you to get the stool tested (routine microscopy). If the child is otherwise active you need not worry.

Let me know if I could help further.

Regards
