This sounds like diarrohea. You should visit a pediatrician.
It is caused by rotavirus which affects the intestine and prevents absorption of nutrients from the food consumed.
Once the baby/kid has loose motion , they lose weight, grows weak and tired due to the dehydration. It occurs as frequent loose motions with or without vomiting .
In babies, the consistency of the poop could be very runny filled with mucus and phlegm. In older kids, it occurs as irritation, tummy ache and frequent bowel movements.
ORS could be given. ORS packets are easily available in medical stores.
If the ORS packets are not available, 1 teaspoon of sugar and equal amount of salt can be mixed in the cooled boiled water and provided after each bowel movement. This helps to restore the water and iron lost.
