  • Decrease the amount of juice he is drinking or even water it way down. You should probably start on the BRAT diet. Bananas, rice, apples and toast. These things all help to firm the stool. I wish you luck.

  • Cut back the juice first off. He really shouldn't get more than 1 8 oz cup of watered down juice a day. That should help him. Also Brats diet and go to the dr if it doesnt get better.

  • I agree w/the Brats diet, but if it goes on I'd definatly call the Dr. If you cut back the liquids and he still has it, he'll get dehydrated.

  • Yeah juice is the worst thing for that. Banana's dry toast etc like the other ladies said.
