Hello Sol lin, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.
When can babies take medicine? actually it all depends on the indications themselves. If the baby is experiencing pain / a symptom of the disease. Medication can be given, depending on the type of medicine, and body weight. To answer your question, to deal with your child who is currently having a fever, accompanied by watery stools, you should consult a doctor directly because watery stools in infants are very easy to cause dehydration, making it very vulnerable. For now you can just give Paracetamol for the fever, don't need bodrexin, and give ORS every time a liquid chapter comes out. Tomorrow morning consult your doctor. Apart from medication you can compress warm water on both baby's armpits to help reduce the fever.
That's all my answer, thank you very much :)
