Loose motions of three days. Not to worry. Start on some good probiotic. Maintain child's hydration by giving ORS water with adequate dilution. Meanwhile get a stool routine done. If normal nothing to worry about. loose motions will take one week to settle down. Regards

Hi, The important points to look at when a child is suffering from loose stools are : 1.Is she having any fever ? 2.Is she dull or looking dehydrated 3.Is she passing less amount of urine than normal 4.Is she taking less oral feeds. If none of these are present then you do not have to worry at all.I would suggest getting a stool examination done if the stools are persisting.Dont worry it should settle down soon. Hope she feels better soon Take care.
