This sounds like a problem called 'toddler's diarrhoea'. This is often due to too much fructose in the diet. Fructose is the natural sugar in fruit. Try your son on a completely fruit free diet for at least 5 days After that he can have apples or pears.He must not drink any fruit juices and must stay off fruit juice for at least 3 months..
