Baby having watery stools, lips and tongue not dry. Digestion problem?

my baby of 5 months old has watery stool for nearly 2 weeks, but she has just one or two times per day. that s why my baby did not gain weight much. At first, I think she got diarrhea but just 1-2 times, the nutritionist told me that her lips and tongue are not dry. So, could you please tell me what s my baby s problem? is that due to my baby digestion system has a problem ?

Pediatrician 's  Response

Because of watery loose stools dehydration may occur if intake of oral feeds doesnt match with losses in stools. So give breast feeding frequently and give sips of oral rehydrating fluids to correct the dehydration and consult your Pediatrician to assess the weight, dehydration and general condition of your baby and proper medication advise.
