Loose motions are most likely due to use of AUGMENTIN as this results in disturbance of normal flora of gut.
Along with ORS sachets,you may give some probiotic like SYRUP VIZYLAC OR NUTROLIN B 5 ml twice a day for 10 days.
Your baby should be all right in next few days.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum

Hi... Sheetal ., continue with the ORS sachets,
Check for the hydration status of the child... if it is good then need not worry...
If the child is dehydrated and not taking orally.. then need to consult a pediatrician for further management...
