A few times in the past few weeks my 16 month old has had bouts of screaming. Like hes in pain. And it seems to be stomach related. He wont let you touch his front torso and screams more if you do. He has regular BMs that arent hard or soft but seemingly just right. My grandma was watching him when the first one happened and since it seemed to be his stomach, she gave him a teaspoon of Maalox. The screaming instantly stopped. Same thing happened today, relentless screaming, teaspoon of Maalox and its all better. What could this be? Heartburn? Does anyone have experience wit this? Acid reflux runs heavy on DH side of the family.
Note: Our pedi told us maalox was ok. She prescribed a mix of maalox and benedryl for him to swallow every 6 hours to help with mouth and throat sores from coxsackie virus, so i know it wont hurt him. He was given 1 teaspoon. The exact amount prescribed for the mouth rinse mixture.
