    4 yr old with stomach pains only at night

    My daughter is 4 and she has been having some stomach problems. It only happens at night and not every night. Most of the time she will poop sometimes diarrhea and sometimes vomits. I'm at a loss to what could be causing this.

    Have you taken her to her pediatrician.....if not, then that should be your first step.

    I would get a notebook and jot down some notes every night - - like:

    Tues. night: stomach ache, fussy, went to sleep - slept all night.
    Wed. night: No issues

    And so forth.....maybe even write down what she ate that day too. After a few weeks, a pattern of sorts may start to show.
    But, I'd still take her to the pedi as soon as you can.
