Definitely talk to his doctor, definitely try the BRAT foods, give him Pedialyte (or the stores generic version) to make sure his electrolytes are balanced.

Also, maybe keep a food journal for him and track when it hits. It could be a food allergy, dairy can cause this through lactose intolerance. Age 1 is when we introduce that, so.... You could try Lactaid or a different milk and see if that doesn't clear it up. With a food journal, you can possibly identify and remove irritating foods from his diet.

Good luck, I hope this gets straightened out soon.

first thing..call your pediatrician PRONTO! other than that, i assume you've tried the brat diet (bananas, rice, applesauce,tea and toast). hope he gets feeling better soon.
