Probably just his body's reaction to whatever is in the cerelac. Read labels carefully and choose products without preservatives and additives. Natural is best...period!
You didn't say how old the baby is but you can cook oats and add a bit of almond milk, rice milk or soy milk and then puree in a food grinder with a touch of sweetener like honey or organic maple syrup.
Do your best to stay away from products that contain words you cannot pronounce. That means there are additives that your child's body can react to in a negative way.
The highest and best to you in finding more natural products to feed your baby.

Green is normal, sometimes indicates a small cold going through his system. Green (green foods or small cold), yellow/orange (jaundice, carrots, sweet potatoes, squash, or other yellow foods), blue (blueberries or other bluish/purple foods), red (blood in stool or spaghetti sauce, other pink/red foods), sandy color (beige foods, bananas, crackers, cereal)
If it is white or black or had obvious blood or mucus, white indicates no bile and black may indicate blood or if your baby is taking an iron supplement.
