Welcome to HCM.
First you try to discontinue breast feeding,it has no meaning at this ageGive him very high fibre diet,liquid diet,plenty of fluids,fruit juices.
You can give stool softner like duphalac,Lactulose.Consult your paediatrisian.
I think he is deficient in water intake. Kidly see that he gets enough water to drink. Add fresh fruits and vegetables to his diet. If he is being exclusively breast fed even at this age he could develop Rickets as a complication. Please be aware.
Make sure that your buddy is given sufficient amount of water....
also don forget this kindly dis continue intake of biscuits wafers and many others...
give them honey 1 tsp mixed with 2-3 drops of ginger juice and 2 flakes of steamed garlic and 1 banana daily... its done
