Discontinue Cerelac: It is possible that the cerelac is thickening the milk too much and causing abdominal discomfort. Take note of exactly how many ounces your baby is drinking. A 5 month old should be taking about 6oz five times in a 24 hour period. She should not be eating anything else at this time including cerelac which contains wheat. You may want to take her to her Dr so that he can examine her.
