Small child, foamy stools, on breast milk. Taking sporlac, ORS. Causes for symptoms?

Hi, My 6.5 months baby boy, passing foamy stools since 3 days. He is on breastmilk and once a day on solid food. I gave him Sporlac twice since 2 days. His stools are reduced for some extent but he continues to pass foamy motions. I am giving him ORS as well to keep him hydrated. He is sleeping well and shows no signs of fever . Please suggest

What is the frequency of the stools? If less than 3 per day you need not worry.
What is the solid food you are giving? Was it newly introduced after which he developed the change in stools?
Sporlac is okay. Unless it is watery and very frequent, you need not give ORS.
Continue breast feeds, Give him rice based foods, vegetable soups and curd. Curd naturally has the probiotics seen in sporlac. Give him lots of curd daily..
Hope you find my answer useful.
