Thanks for your query.
Complementary feeding should be started after 6 months of age.
Initially start with boiled rice water,boiled pulses water,coconut water .
One thing to be introduced at a time in small quantities.
semisolids are to be introduced later.

Since now she is passing loose stools,give oral rehydration solution sip by sip after each loose stool,
Give probiotic like lactobaccilus for 2 to 3 days.

Wishing your baby good health.
God bless.
