hi,
welcome to hcm
thanks for the query
you have to gradually start cerelac.give more breast milk
as the baby grows gradually increase the amount of cerelac
if the frequency of stool is more then it may cause dehydration. so its better to consult a pediatrician and get evaluated
give him enough clean water. water should be clean. first boil cool and then give the water
take care
