Call your pediatrician. They may well want to take a stool sample to check for things like bacteria or parasites. It might only be a self-limiting inflammation in her bowel, but best to at the very least speak to them to be sure.

Meanwhile, you can buy drinks aimed at kids that will help replace lost electrolytes and prevent dehydration. One brand in the USA is Pedialyte.
