Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic,
Exclusive breastfeeding is the best for your baby till the age of 6 months.
If breastfeeding is not sufficient you can go for formula feeding.
For loose stools you can add probiotic like lactobacillus sachets.
Colic is common with formula feeding, and this may be the cause of crying in the night.
Colic can be treated by oral drops containing dill oil after your doctor prescription.
Burp the child after each feed.
Hope I have answered your query.
