Hello sifat.zahera
You havent mentioned about breast feeding your child. Whenever the babies dietary habit changes from exclusive breast milk to formula foods etc around 6 month usually this happens and above said symptoms may happen. If those loose stools are not associated with crying in pain, fever or decrease in appetite nothing need to be done, it will resolve on its own, no need for medicines your baby is in good health.
