Not eating and tummy problems

Fayew profile image


My little boy is nearly 1 and every evening after 5pm he starts to get a grumbly tummy, sweats as if he is in pain (but no temperature) and has been off his food for a week now but still takes his milk. He is sometimes sick in the night too.

Does anyone what this could be?

Thank you, Yeah he has been to the toilet today x

Is he teething? My 11mo gets a dodgy tummy and goes off her food when her mouth hurts. She only takes her milk too, I think because it doesn’t need chewing!

Yes he seems to be teething as he has 6 already. Just don’t know if it’s a bug or teeth x

Have you also looked into the possibility of an allergy? Could something he's eating be disagreeing with him?

These are not symptoms of allergy... allergy is a reaction to the food not refusing it.

I'm pretty chilled ... obviously you aren't. Sorry if you don't want to learn and correct misconceptions

Hi Hun is he drinking cows milk or infant milk ? He also could have a lactose intolerance in something if it’s not teething! If he’s still off solids try calling your health clinic see if they can help you. Sorry not much help and I hope he gets well soon.

Asked about toileting as my little girl doesn’t eat if she’s not gone toilet for 3 days and she’s on movicol medication for it.


Thank you everyone for your advice,I’ll monitor him and see how he is in a few days then will take him back to the gp x
