My Step Son is 4 1/2 years old...and we only get him 10 days out of every month.. Well everytime he comes up here, he always wakes up early in the morning and starts whinning about his stomach hurting...and there have been a few times where he goes in the bathroom and makes himself throw up! Could this possibly be a sign of bulimia? should we worry that maybe his mother is doing something like this in front of him? Any advice would be great, because I just need to know if he is being dramatic and acting out, or if there is something really wrong with him!

Maybe a visit to the docs?



Thanks Mommies!

My husband and I have caught our 4 1/2 year old doing the same thing. But she doesn't complain about stomach pain. I am a stay at home mom and our daughter doesn't go anywhere except rarely to my mother's-in-law house. I don't know where she would pick this up from or where she leearned it but it is starting to worry me as it is becoming more frequent.

He might have an allergy to some food. Maybe taking him to the doc or asking his mom if he is showing the same signs at home would help too. I have an allergy to wheat which can make you stomach really hurt and sometimes you throw up too. Just a thought

that is a sign of bulimia, is his mum showing any signs try talking to her if you can,



No child really knows this i wouldnt say its a sign of acting out.



If you cant really talk to his mum or she doesnt convince, I will suggest going to the doctors for some advice and see wot they say



hope this is helpful and good luck i hope its not bulimia or anything serious

take him to the doctors , he may be stressed and that is his way of showing it.or he may be intolerant to some foods
