Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

In such young age common cause of diarrhea is viral gastroenteritis esp rota virus.

For that Symptomatic management done.

Maintain hydration with lots of water.
The prescribed sachet is pro-biotic and can be prescribed

I will suggest you to investigate with stool routine micro examination and occult blood test as well.

Take care

Hope this will help you

Consult pediatrician for examination
