I dont think so it is loos motion, But still.....

In loose motion important thing is watch for Dehydration Sign. (low urine out put,sunken eyes, Absent tear less, drowsiness, Lethargic, Abdominal distention, Restlessness etc)

Pediatric opinion:
1.If your child dehydrate.
2.Stool with blood
3.Stool with mucus(White sticky discharge)
4.High Grade fever.

I would advice:
keep her/ him Hydrate. Is most important condition in diarrhea
1.Give plenty of water(1/2 liter water+ 4 tsf sugar+ 1/2 tsf salt) Or ORS
2.Apple juice, Tea, Pomegranate juice, Coconut water, lemon water Butter milk, Rice Kanjee,
Arrowroot Kanjee etc
3. Proper hygiene.
4 Avoid out side food.

Diet Tips:
1.He should encourage to feed, but should never be forced, as this creates an aversion to feeding.
2.Give small quantity of food, gradually increased as per demand.
3.If he rejects any food item, it should be stopped, and may be reintroduce a week or two later.
4.It is preferable to introduce only one new food a week, so that intolerance can be spotted.
Mashed and boiled Vegetable
Boiled or Half Boiled egg
Custard Jelly
Over Boiled Rice with Dal,
Minced Mutton or boiled fish
Bread Or Chapatti Soaked in milk and sugar
Gradually Normal diet should be given

NOTE: Sometimes its very difficult to accept new food, so at time try one type of food for several days.
