  • If he isn't used to being away from his parents could be stress. In a new place he might need to use the bathroom but not feel comfortable. Did he overeat? Is he acting sick otherwise?

    I would call the parents and see if they have a sure fire tummy trouble thing they do (like rub his tummy or soda pop)

  • I would call the doctor. If hes had previous problems you should take him to the hospital.

  • Is he running any fever? I wonder if he does this at home. If it's chronic stomach condition, the parents should be getting him to a gastroenterologist and find out what's going on. Mom should at least have been reachable in case of an emergency. If you can't reach her then take him to the ER.

  • gosh I hope he is feeling better by now but I when my daughter has a bellyache I use a boo boo bag I got from a Mom on here. It is like the bags you put on your neck with rice in them that you heat up in the microwave. This have flaxseed in them instead of rice and you can heat them up and put them on their belly. It always works for my daughter.

  • was it gas? If it happens a lot, his mom should check his diet.
