Thank you for your query,
Your child is having Acute Gastroenteritis which may be bacterial or viral.

Monitor her hydration statue and urine output.
Consult your Pediatrician if loose motions are persisting or any dehydration is there for specific medication for gastroenteritis.
Hope i have answered your query.
