Place a glycerine suppository (paediatric) into his anus to soften stool since he has not passed stool for 5 days (not for regular use), give him little water daily around 60 ml in a day divided into small amounts using a spoon. You can also try 60 ml juice in divided amount (without sugar).
Since the child is exclusively on breast feed, you shd include more liquids in your diet. Take water, fruits, nimbupani, buttermilk, coconut water etc. Considering the hot weather, the baby needs to be fed more frequently.
