Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
Diarrhoea is common in kids of that age.Give him plenty of fluids with ORS , more than daily intake. Check if he has a fever.I advise you to visit your Pediatrician and get your kid examined.That would give clue about any infection.
Take care.

Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
If the consistency of stools is not watery then there is nothing to worry. In some children it is seen that they pass stool after every meal. Still you can increase his intake of curd. This might help in decreasing the frequency.
