Thanks for your query.You were feeding your 5 months old child with Cerelac and Rice mixture after he had a diarrhea.Normally at the age of five to six month there is a change in Bacterial Flora of the intestines so you have to feed them with soup ,rice water,banana and avoid solid food.So withheld Cerelac for the time being and give him Oral hydration liquid to avoid dehydration and diarrhea is under control and start feeding gradually with Cerelac,Rice etc.You can consult some Pediatrician for proper schedule and food to be given at this age.
