My 3yr old dd has been complaining of stomach pains all day and just looks really down. I gave her Advil earlier but it doesn't seem to be working. Does anyone have any idea what it is and what can I do for her?

Where in the abdomen? Upper towards her chest or lower towards her hips?

Has she had a good amount of water today? Dehydration maybe.

Give her something to settle her stomach.

If she's complaining of stomach pains, don't give her any more Advil, it can cause upset. It could be the flu coming on, constipation, anything really. Maybe try to give her clear fluids (like room-temp flat Ginger Ale) and easy-to-digest foods like crackers until tomorrow and if she's not well tomorrow take her to the doctor. If she's crying about the pain I'd take her to the ER tonight.

I can't really tell, she is pointing to the middle. She's had lots to drink today.

Try giving her pepto. I have four boys and if that dont work do what my mom did for me. Put water in a medicine cup and tell her its magic medicine. It worked for me. Lol. Good luck.

She doesn't really want to drink or eat anything right now.
