Child feels hungry, stomach getting bigger and hard. What could be wrong?

My 4 year old daughter is always hungry, the pass couple of days I ve notice her stomach has been bigger than normal. She is potty trained and goes to the bathroom by herself and never tells me if she s gone to the bathroom so I m not sure when the last time she has pooped... Her little tummy sticks out and it s hard, it only is like this at night! What could be wrong?!

Pediatrician 's  Response
first of all kindly keep a watch as to how many times she poops per day, what is the colour, does she strain during the process and does she pass hard stools.

next thing is just check out for worm infestation by stool routine and microscopy and stool for ova and cysts.

if your kid is not dewormed then get her dewormed by Tab. Albendazole.

keep a watch on weight and height of the baby for growth.

give her semisolid and liquid diet preferably if you happen to notice passing of hard stools.
