Please first take care of the hygiene of water and whatever he is eating, well. Children are more susceptible to infections. Take care of what he is putting in his mouth, toy, dirt etc, which may be giving him frequent loose motions. Boil his water for 20 minutes at least. You may give him all types of fruits (mashed, cooked, juice form), vegetables (cooked mashed or soup), khichri, dal chawal, roti well mashed in dal/veg, porridges, curd, butter milk, scrambled/boiled eggs, well cooked fish/poultry,if non vegetarian. Give in a form (mashed, pureed or small bites), whatever he can take easily. Start with small amounts 2-3 spoons and gradually increase to a katori, what ever he accepts readily. Give 3-4 solid feeds in a day. Alternate these with milk feeds. Hope it helps.
