Thank you for your query,
Your child is suffering from Gastroenteritis mostly of viral in origin.
Give frequent breast feeding, continue enterogermina and oral rehydrating solutions to prevent dehydration as advised by your Doctor.
Watch for the signs of dehydration like decreased activity, decreased urine, dryness of tongue and oral cavity.
It will take 2 to 3 days to decrease loose stools but in this period maintain hydration and if you find any symptoms or signs of dehydration consult your doctor for further assessment and management.
Hope i have answered your query.
