Thanks for the query
I would suggest you to stop the antibiotic, to give easily digestable foods like rice, khichdi, suji's preparation, smashed potato, curd, banana, sabudana etc. Give ORS and plain water frequently to maintain adequate hydration. Avoid milk and control the amount of sugar in diet. Give Zinc syrup 5 ml once a day for 14 days and observe for improvement. What you need to look for is a gross change in consistency, whether any decreased feeding is there due to lethargy, decreased urinary frequency , having temperature, blood mixed stool or any other obvious symptoms are there. If there is nothing like this then you should not worry. If you notice any one of these or condition is not improving in few days then consult your doctor.
I hope this answers your query effectively

Wish you and your family good health
