Pediatrician 's  Response
Hi,

Is there any abdominal pain/discomfort, retching or nausea?

This can suggest dyspepsia or flatulence. But in the absence of above said symptoms, chance is less and we need to palpate her abdomen for a better idea. If concerning, kindly get her examined with your pediatrician.

Meanwhile, include lot of fibre rich items (fruits and vegetables, raw wheat, oats) in her diet, and drink enough fluids. Restrict spicy and caffeinated items. These measures will relive any issues related to dyspepsia, flatulence and constipation.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr. Muhammed Aslam TK
