Diet, Daycare ?: Various factors. Most common ones is day care. Kids have numerous sick kids around them that can cause symptoms of viral gastroenteritis. Second would be any food intolerance. See if there is any recurrent symptoms with certain foods offered? You might want to try rotating his diet. Another would be parasites or bacteria in the GI tract. What ever the cause, make sure he is well hydrated.

Dr. Ruiz-Healy is correct, but would add the recommendation that you take him to see your pediatrician and allow them to assess him.
