If baby is active and playful,  no fever,  passing adequate urine ie.  minimum 6-8 times per day, then no need to worry for motion ( once in 7 days or  15 times per day-  both conditions normal). Don't give so much importance to motion unless blood in motion or bad smelling motion or white colour motion. Keep ur baby well hydrated Exclusive breast feed ur Baby till 6 months of age.don't give anything other than breast milk at this age. Wait for some more days Everything will be alright. If blood in motion/persistant foul smelling motion or less urine output then consult with  ur nearest pediatrician, He will giude you in a better way.

Stop bottle feeding and breastfeeding if given,give just 2 milk feeds using a glass and 4 solid meals a day including curd and Banana in the diet in addition to whatever you prepare at home. Give ors after every loose motion if watery and give Enterogermina vial one vial twice a day for 5 days. Maintain strict hygiene in preparation and giving of feeds.

There is no medicine to stop loose motions. Antibiotic will prevent the growth of bacteria. It is not to stop the motions. Give WHO ORS to prevent dehydration.
