For a few months now, off and on DD has been complaining of a stomach ache after we put her to bed. She doesn't complain during the day, just at bedtime so we've been thinking it was a stalling method. Everytime we just give her kisses and tell her to go back to bed. No more complaining until the next time (may be a few days later). Well this morning she was crying and complaining that her stomach hurt. DH thinks she was just tired and emotional (she was up about an hour later than normal and up early). I'm starting to question it. What would you do? I think I'm going to wait and see what her daycare says but we're leaving for vacation tomorrow, so I'm nervous about it actually being something.
We think she's doing it for attention or b/c she's not tired enough for bed. This week we pushed her bedtime back to 7:45-8:00 and she hasn't complained once about it. Hopefully that's all it was b/c on vacation she never complained either. She did tell me that pooping is hard, so we've tried to increase the fiber in her diet.
