You are asking strangers with good intentions (hopefully) for medical advice.  We don't know you, your daughter or her situation.  We aren't able to see her to evaluate her or run tests nor are we able to look at a sample of her stool or listen to that cough.  If you have concerns, you really need to contact a medical professional either by phone or face to face conversation.  You can try a Walgreens pharmacy if they have those in your area---many now have walkin clinics.  You can also try an urgent care center or as a last resort, the emergency room.

I am a first time mom and I was just asking for some simple advice in case another mom out there has experienced this with their baby. Hence my post. If it concerned me that much then I would seek medical attention. Thanks for your response.

I totally know where you are coming from. Most of the time, people are not asking for medical advice, just advice in general.

She might just have a small cold. I would keep an eye on her for a few days before seeking medical attention UNLESS she can't breathe, spikes a fever, stops eating, etc.

She might have gas or be constipated sometimes that can cause the diarrhea. You can try some gas drops, gripe water. Also rub her tummy, a warm bath, hold her with her tummy on your arm and support her with the other arm and walk around or bounce on exercise ball.
