Hello Dinesh and welcome to HCM
It is very common in children to have fever and loose motion during the process of teething. So not to be worried about that. Just keep her hydrated with water and electrolyte powder so that dehydration and electrolyte imbalance not occur.
Now regarding sleeplessness, the cause me be pain or fever. Give antipyretics like paracetamol when their is fever. For pain and sleeping problem consult your doctor for some sedative in the night and analgesic for day time.
Hope this will help you out.
Best Wishes
