In brief: None
I would not experiment with any non-traditional therapies, as you may just lose time and have his infection progress rapidly when it might be too late.

In brief: Yogurt /Probiotics
An infant with e coli infection should be followed carefully for fever, dehydration and prolonged diarrhea or signs of other systems becoming infected req medical attn e coli may be localized or spread to the bloodstream to cause sepsis.
In addition, toxins are released by e coli which are linked to disease. Yogurt and probiotics for children may help recovery from an acute diarrheal illness.
