Try bananas, make sure you give him pedielite(spelling?), or something with electrolytes to keep him hydrated. Don't give juice, that tends to flush them out even more. Does he have a fever? If he does, then he needs to go to the doctor. If he wont drink the electrolytes, then they have popsicles too.

I like the BRATY diet (bananas, rice, applesauce, toast, yogurt). If you give juice switch to pear and not apple (tends to loosen things up). Um Pedialite of the generic is good. Stay away from sugars if you can because those loosen things up too. Hmm. .. DR Sears gives plenty of good advice for it http://www.askdrsears.com/html/8/T081500.asp
