Pediatrician 's  Response
Thanks for your query.
Your daughter is having acute gastroenteritis. which is mostly viral in nature and takes few days to subside.
Most important is to maintain proper hydration.
Give her oral rehydration solution sip by sip after each loose stool,give coconut water,lemonade,banana,boiled potato,curd,rice puree.
Give lactobaccilus for 2 to 3 days and zinc for 14 days.

Watch for features of dehydration;
lethargy/decreased urine output/sunken eyes.
In case you find any ,get her evaluated by pediatrician.

Wishing your baby good health.
God bless.

Thank you for your query,
Your daughter seems to have a viral gastroenteritis.
Maintain her hydration by giving sip by sip of oral rehydration solutions like Pedialyte, coconut water, lemon water to replace the losses of water in the stools.
Monitor her hydration by her urine output, skin turgor, and oral cavity, tongue moisture.
If you find any sign of dehydration try to give more ORS.
Consult your Pediatrician for the assessment and specific treatment.
Hope I have answered your query.
