In brief: Rice cereal
The current thinking is that it may be better to wait until closer to 6 months before starting solids/rice cereal.
Normal baby stools should be the consistency of peanut butter, or even thinner. When you do start rice cereal, opt for brown rice cereal, which is made from the whole rice grain.

In brief: Formula feeding
Diarrhea may not be caused by either formula but by overeating.
Babies are usually satisfied and eat every 2-2.5 hours. How much formula does your baby take every 1.5 hrs? Does he do this 24/7? You can rephrase your question for a more specific answer.
