Hi welcome to HealthcareMagic

If the child is feeding well and playful, then continue to give ORS solution every 15 to 30 minutes... If the there is signs of moderate to severe dehydration, not feeding well,.. then it is better to get the child admitted in hospital.. antibiotics, and i.v fluids will be given...
Hope I have answered your question...
