Stop domperidone as this is a prokinetic and may cause diarrhea.
Check the dilution of the formula feed.
Give her plenty of fluid plain water or ORS to maintain hydration. Don't stop feeding, continue it in same manner as before illness.
Give probiotic for 3-4 days and also Zinc syrup for 10 days.
Get a stool routine examination and for reducing substance done.
Use nasal saline drop, one drop in each nostril alternatively 4-6 times a day to prevent nasal blockade.
