Diarrhoea started 8 hours ago.
2 or 3 times diarrhoea per hour.
She doesn't want to eat much but is drinking water and formula.
Less urine than usual but has been urinating.

Thank you for the input.
As the stool is mixed with blood and mucus, it is most likely due to bacterial infection.
She will need antibiotic to cure infection.
You should consult doctor asap to have an examination and prescription.
I hope this information will be helpful.
