She seems to have picked up a gastro infection. The important thing is to replace fluid and electrolytes so you must offer her regular sips of a Rehidrat solution [get the sachets from your pharmacy]. If the diarrhoea persists and especially if she starts vomiting please take her to see a paediatrican or to your GP.
