Thanks for the query
Crampy pain abdomen with loose stool suggests amoebic or may be bacterial infection. Give her Syp. Ofal-M/O2 10 ml ( 50 mg/5ml) twice a day for 5 days, Drop Decolic 5 drops three times a day for 3 days , Zinc syp. 5 ml once a day for 14 days, Enterogermina respule One such daily for 3 days. GivE him ORS to maintain adequate hydartion. In diarrhea strictly say no to any type of juice, diet with high sugar, dairy products (milk), high fiber diet, carbonated drink, spicy and oily food. All these causes disturbance in absorption in already compromised gut. You can give him rice, smashed potato, banana, curd, rice moong dal gruel, suji's preparation etc.
What you need to look for is a gross change in consistency, whether any decreased feeding is there due to lethargy, decreased urinary frequency , poor weight gain, having temperature, blood mixed stool or any other obvious symptoms are there. If there is nothing like this then you should not worry. If you notice any one of these then consult your doctor immediately.
So, I would suggest you to ensure adequate hydration of baby by frequent feed, continue ORS sips and be watchful for danger signs.
I hope this answers your query well
Wish you and your family good health
With regards

Dear Friend,

Most likely she has gastroenteritis due to rotavirus. Please start giving her Oral Rehydration Salts solution (like Electral powder mixed with water) and take her to a pediatrician to check her weight and general status as soon as possible.
