Brief Answer:
You may give all that

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thanks for asking on this platform

You can give all the mentioned items but better to give one after other at an interval of 3-4 days so that you will be able to know if there is any allergy or intolerance to one particular food item.
You can start cerelac stage 2.

Give at least 3 major meals that is one small katori of cereals with milk or pulses and two to three snacks (of fruits, biscuits, soup etc) and milk in between.
Continue giving breast feed particularly at night.

I hope this helps.
Please let me know if you have any more questions.

Hi

Thanks for follow up

Hiccups are protective reflex and in most of the cases it is not associated with any complications. You need not to worry about that.
If it persists longer or associated with any abnormality like breathing difficulty or vomiting please get him evaluated by a pediatrician.
