This is a very common problem at this age called 'toddler's diarrhoea' [even though he may not actually have diarrhoea each time he passes a stool]. The stools are usually rather loose. Stop all fruit juices and fruit in his diet except for apple or pears.The cause of the problem is usually excessive amounts of fructose which is the natural fruit sugar in his diet.
