You do not mention whether your baby has been vomiting and also how long she has had diarrhoea.There is always danger of dehydration and loss of body salts with diarrhoea in a young baby.You can try giving her extra sips of an electrolyte solution such as Rehidrat as often as she will drink this solution. If she still has diarrhoea tomorrow she must be seen by a doctor or clinic nurse to make sure that she is not dehydrated.
