Hi Bhagya,

Such type of stools are of NO SIGNIFICANCE and you need not worry/ no need of any tests and no need of any treatment for this.

For complementary feeding, home cooked food (dal, rice gruel: khichari, suji, mashed fruits etc. is better than things like Cerelac.

I would be happy to answer general queries on prevention and treatment of ailments in newborn, infant, toddler, child or an adolescent. Needless to say, it will not be possible to answer any query that requires diagnosing, since it is not possible to examine a child online.
