I appreciate your concern for your baby,
It is advisable to do exclusive breast feeding for 6 months,after that complemantary feeding should be started,which is in addition to breast milk we dive fluids like coconut water.rice water,pulses should introduce one new thing at a time that to for few days,then start new one.
crying is normal activity of babies until the time it is consolable,

Wishing your baby good health.
God bless
