well come to health care magic,

In this age group the commonest cause is ROTA virus(IF not vaccinated with this vaccine).No food causes diarrhoea if not unhyiginic .Teething dont cause diarrhoea.If your child is otherwise active then no need for any aggresive treatment.

Hi Goshika;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The loose motions of your baby can be due to reasons like infection;teething;and even in case of food intolerance.Since you say he is active and playful the reason may be teething diarrhoea also.Please give him enough water with ORS to keep him hydrated.Better consult a Paediatrician for examination and proper treatment to stop the motions and prevent dehydration.
