try sucralfate

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing to us.
I think your child has a mild indigestion and gastritis.
For this I usually prescribe sucralfate suspension around 15 ml thrice daily before meals.
Avoid heavy fatty foods for a few days.
Ensure he drinks plenty of liquids.
If not settling consult your doctor.
Wishing your child good health.
