Hi.... He's having acute diarrhea & as you haven't quoted that he's dull or lethargic... I assume there's no dehydration. He needs replacement fluids in the form of ORS & zinc supplements & symptomatic antiemetic. Avoid fruit juices... Which may worsen diarrhea. If he's active & urinating normally...don't worry about his feeding as he will pick after this episode settles. Happy to help anytime. If my answer has helped you...kindly rate it.
