my sister son completed 6months. we have started giving him cerelac, porridge of fruits, vegetables plus BM. after giving cerelac he started having problem with motions. He is not even going for once in a day and he is crying alot. we gave him few drops of castor oil then he started to poop but next day again same problem. when consulted doc he asked me to give only cerelac. can we give him castor oil daily and is that cerelac is not digestable easily? what are the supplement food to give?

for his constipation, please post your query in wellness, since the baby is too small. For complementary foods,you may start with strained vegetable soup including green leafy vegetables , fresh fruit juice. At 6 months you can give ragi porridge, rice kheer, suji kheer or phirni etc. You can gradually start with mashed banana, boiled potatoes, dal water also. Boiled water can be given especially after each solid feed. Starting with a spoon or two you may gradually increase the amount to 120-250 ml in a day. Keep the seasonings mild, keep the consistency flowing initially. You may give three solid feeds maximum, in a day. Click on the following link for details on introducing solids Hope this helps
