3 to 5 semisolid green or yellow stools are normal in breastfeeding children, if the stool is watery, then it's loose stools. If she had loose stools syp Zinc 10mg once daily for 14 days and ORS 50ml with every loose stool. Continue breastfeeding on demand. Don't give any other feeds nor water. Please keep a watch on urine output, passing atleast 5 to 6 times a day. In case of baby not feeding, dull, increased loose stools or vomiting, baby not active, consult nearby pediatrician immediately.
