HELLO
Baby should be weaned very gradually.A breast fed baby at the age of 6 months should be stsrted with clear liquids and wait for 5-6 days to start another liquid or semisolid food item.when accustomed to previous ,can switch over to next thing while continuing previous food also.I feel boiled egg was a little hurried decision. give ORS and more fluid to keep well hydrated for a couple of days.( see urine is passed adequately).
good luck
