Just gas?

My 3 year old does not drink milk often he dean some today, then ate pizza for lunch. Very busy today. He had one slightly runnier and stinkier diaper. Late that evening he was crying in pain saying his tummy hurt. Then he just farted a TON for a while and was fine. What the heck is this?

Is your kid intolerant to lactose? if it is so, eating dairy products will cause painful gas, if he is also not pooping properly, then eating lot of bread, pasta, potatoes, milk, cheese, apples, bananas can make the situation worse. "...Then he just farted a TON for a while and was fine." so this could be just gas.
Apart from stomach pain, if he's also feeling a burning sensation in the chest, that could be due to reflux, reflux can be triggered by few foods, keep track of what your kid is eating, and identify the food that is causing it, these details could help your pediatrician to identify the condition (if in case you decide to visit).
Better to speak to your doc if your child faces this regularly.
