Just keep his cutlery clean and sterilise things that he puts in his mouth. If he does get this then take him to the doctors asap as he can not afford to lose weight. It is very important that you give him lots of fluid. Try and get him to drink Dioralite which is a hydration drink for babies and adults. you are doing every thing right but these bugs are probably air borne and not passed by contact, be prepared but with any luck his natural immunity will protect him. Fingers crossed.
