My son is 2-1/2. he is an only child and gets tons of attention. he is in part time daycare and the other part he's with grandma, on the weekends he gets me mostly but a lot from dad all attention wise.. Here's the question.. He complains CONSTANTLY that his tummy hurts or that he's sick.. always wants a wash cloth on his tummy, however its mostly at bedtime and when he wakes up- I get the bedtime that maybe he doesn't want to go to bed so its attention but why the AM? I am trying to get ready for work and get him ready and he's whinging and crying he's sick, hold me, and he will just lay on me. He wakes at night and says and does the same thing. Finally after months of taking to nurses and trying all I knew, I had my husband take him in to the Dr. The dr ( and my husband has been saying this all along ) that he's trying to get attention and he's fine. waking at night is now habit- that's it.. why would he seek attention ??

Maybe when he acts this way at day care or at grandmas he gets a lot of attention. Have you talked to the other people who take care of him?
You just need to tell him to stop. Or take his temp. And then tell him you are not sick, you do not have a temp. For the stomach act thing. Give him some water and tell him that will make your stomach stop hurting. Kids are gullible
