Infant suffering with loose stools post intake of rice, stools have green specs. Prescribed with rinifol. Right medicine?

1) my 6 month old girl is suffering from loose stool . Actually she had ruffly smashed rice 3 days before and started this problem. I think it is little paining while passing stool, not other times. Mostly she is passing stool immidiate after feeding. Sometimes, there are yellow and green little blocks / dots in stool like undigested food. Her appetite is normal as always. She is now on mother milk & loctogen 1 stage. Doctor has prescribed rinifol dry syrup only. 2.5 ml thrice day for 5 days course. Is it right priscription? 2) If child has fever , should we prefer light medicine which takes 2 or 3 days to go fever OR else we should prefer little strong medicine which takes 1 day to reduce fever ? Kindly advise for above both problems.

rinifol syrup contains lactobacillus and iron vitamin supplements ..
it helps giving strngth to ur baby..
firstly i would like to tell u that at this age of 6 mths all this is common as its time for teething of the baby and they keep evrything in their mouth due to the irritation due to teething..
and hence get loose motions easily..
so better u also give ur baby wormectal syr and try avoiding ur baby to keep anything in her mouth ..
and medicine for fever is always paracetamol syr with dosage of 250 mg/ml thrice daily.. there is no heavy or light dose u should take at home ..
thank u ..
