Thanks for your query.
Your baby is having diarrhea which is mostly viral in nature and subsides in few days.
Most important is to maintain proper hydration.
Give oral rehydration solution sip by sip after each loose stool.,give coconut water,lemonade,curd,banana,boiled potato,rice porrigde.
Give lactobacillus for 2 to 3 days.
Continue with medication as advised.

Regarding her low hemoglobin.i suggest you to get her evaluated by pediatrician as she needs to be put on iron supplementation.
Give her good nutritious diet rich in fruits,salads,green leafy vegetables once loose motions get settled.

Wishing your baby good health.
God bless.

The reason for loose motion was the medicines or it started of with fever and loose motions??if its due to some antibiotic then it will settle down as the medicine is stopped or you can give some probiotics.If the cause of fever was loose motions then the medicine will take sometime for action say max 5days.
Home remedy for loose motion is rescrict her milk intake and instead give curd ,kichidi and see to it she is kept well hydrated with ORS coconut water etc.
Home remedy for HB 8.5 is after she is off infection then increase green leafy vegetables in diet ,give her groundnut jaggery chikis,friuts etc
Take Care

Thank you for your query,
Your child seems to have acute gastroenteritis.
You can give sips of oral rehydrating fluids like Pedialyte or home remedies like sips of coconut water, lemon water to maintain hydration.
For probiotics you can give curd and yogurt as they contain lactobacillus which adds protective action of probiotic.
Continue Tylenol for fever in prescribed dose.
Monitor hydration by activity, urine output and skin turgor.
If loose motions are not controlled consult your Pediatrician.
Low hemoglobin is due to iron deficiency most commonly and child needs iron and vitamins in therapeutic dosage , so you can take treatment advise from the doctor and you can start it after loose motions subside.
In food you can give green leafy vegetables, mashed meat, and jaggery in suitable form to increase hemoglobin.
Hope I have answered your query.
