toddler with distended stomach

Hi 10 days ago my 2 year old daughter, suffered a vomiting bug, but no diarriah.
This lasted about 2 days. She had no recovered and is slowly getting her appiatite back.
However i have noticed her stomach is quite distended. she has been having regular well formed yet pale bowl movements, since the bug. Today she has had very loose stools and lots of wind (lots and lots). She appears to be in no discomfort. Her stomach is still hard and distended. Should i get her to the drs?

YES!  If her abdomen were soft, I wouldn't be too concerned, but a hard and distended abdomen needs a doctor.  Don't wait - get her in today.  When you make the appointment, make certain you tell the staff that she has a hard swollen abdomen.
