Hello Welcome to health care magic ..............
First thing he should have been preferably on breast milk.
Second loose stools in a baby on alternate milk is common and could be due to many reasons- 1) Infection because of unhygenic practices of feeding . 2) If given high osmotic feeds.
So wat you could do is get the stool examined and this will tell you is there is infection .
If infection is there treatment would depend on weather its bacterial or viral - bacterial give antibiotics , viral no specific treatment.
