Hi Rekha
As you have used advent(amoxicillin) for throat infection , this pale yellow stools are due to antibiotic associated diarrhea as it is a common association with amoxicillin and nothing to worry. You can give econorm once daily by adding in milk or water for 3 to 5 days.And you can give oral rehydrating solutions sips by sips to prevent dehydration and any problem consult your Pediatrician.

Pediatrician, Neonatology Dr. Uma Rajah Ananth's  Response
This can happen due to
1 viral infection in throat can lead to loose stools
2 associated viral intestinal infection
3- advent itself can cause loose stools in some.
just wait and watch- give enough fluids including oral electrolytes like electrobion-

Thanks for your query.
As you told that your daughter was given a course of antibiotic,diarrhoea is a side effect of antibiotics because they interfere with gut flora,need not to worry it will settle down in couple of days,you can give econorm as it is a probiotic,also maintain proper hydration.
Your baby will be fine.
God bless.
